Coronavirus (COVID-19): economic impact of labour market effects

This note examines briefly the impact of emerging labour market effects (such as job losses and reduced earnings) that have come about as a result of the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent UK lockdown. The note also discusses the various categories of workers that are most likely to be affected by these labour market changes as well as assessing the impact of the support measures put in place by the UK Government for individuals and households, including identifying their limitations or gaps. The note also considers potential impacts for those with various protected characteristics, including women, minority ethnic people, disabled people, lone parents, older and younger people, as well as those experiencing socio-economic disadvantage.
