Romanian Journal of Economics, 2020, vol. 51, issue 2(60), 155-169
The outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic imposed the adoption of measures, which drastically limited the economic activities in order to reduce the risks of contamination. The respective measures induces complex effects both on the labour supply and demand. The recessionist effects are dominant, while the opportunities for new jobs occur in the domain of informational technologies and healthcare. The paper reviews the main measures for social and jobs protection adopted at the European and international level, in the context of the pandemic recession, and proposes some directions of action in order to mitigate the negative effects of COVID 19 on the employment in Romania in the short and medium run.
