Consequences of COVID-19 Measures for the Labour Market or Labour Market Policy Actors

The research project shows in a first step whether or how the impact of the measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic has affected employment in other European countries in 2020, or which groups of people in which sectors have suffered employment losses and which employment-stabilising measures have been implemented. The second step is to ask what challenges the placement process faces, for example, what tools are used during the pandemic. Examples are identified and their strengths and weaknesses are discussed. Finally, conclusions for Austria are formulated.
