Coronavirus: The Impact on Employers Throughout Europe
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, first identified in Wuhan, China, has spread beyond China's borders to dozens of countries, infecting tens of thousands of people and causing a mounting number of fatalities. Preliminary estimates indicate that the latest coronavirus outbreak may not peak until late April 2020.
Businesses throughout Europe should be prepared for legal concerns in the workplace resulting from the coronavirus. Also, there may be country-specific requirements and opportunities—for example, for France, the Netherlands, and Belgium—which are discussed in this White Paper.
