Thinking of your global workforce

COVID-19 global employer guide


We have created this COVID-19 global employer guide to provide you with an overview of how jurisdictions around the world have responded to the outbreak.

The COVID-19 pandemic has continued for longer than anyone could have anticipated at the outset and our teams across the world have been continuing to support employers in this in this fast-changing area.

This updated version of the guide takes account of new developments, includes brand new content on testing and vaccination and allows you to make easy, at-a-glance comparisons to help with your business decisions.

Our extensive global footprint means that we are well placed to help employers, wherever they have a presence. Our teams across the world have been supporting employers steer through the legal and practical employment implications raised by the pandemic, including producing a variety of updates. Please see further information contained in our latest briefings on COVID-19 on our Coronavirus hub and contact the following partners if you require advice and assistance. Further, for information on global reorganizations, see our Global workforce reorganization series materials.
