June 18, 2020. Preventing Unemployment During COVID-19: Lessons from European “Short-Time” Employment Schemes. This event was organized by the Center for Global Work and Employment in cooperation with LEARN and the Transatlantic Labor Institute. Under the impact of COVID-19, the level of unemployment in the United States has risen to about twice that in Europe, with low-income people, BIPOC communities (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), and women disproportionately bearing the brunt of the pandemic’s labor market fallout. This webinar explores how European countries have used “short-time” employment schemes to buffer economic displacement by allowing companies to apply for publicly sponsored wage replacement as they reduce employees’ work hours (including to zero).
