In addition to the tragic loss of life and damage to human health and communities, the COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating impacts on the world of work. It has led to increased unemployment, underemployment and inactivity; losses in labour and business income, especially in the most impacted sectors; enterprise closures and bankruptcies, particularly for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises; supply chain disruptions; informality and insecurity of work and income; new challenges to health, safety and rights at work; and exacerbated poverty and economic and social inequality. In addition to the fundamentals, this second edition of the Academy on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work Academy will focus on good practices as we aim for a human-centred recovery to the COVID-19 crisis.
Engage with your peers and rights at work experts virtually through your computer, tablet or smart phone, wherever you are.
