The coronavirus pandemic has affected workplaces across the globe. Governments are scrambling to adopt measures to help stem the spread of the virus, while recognizing an employer’s need to stay in business. To help employers with operations in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region keep track of the varying work and travel restrictions, school closures, sick pay obligations, employer subsidies, ability to reduce employees’ salary and hours, authority to require employees to work from home, unemployment support, and special dismissal protections, Littler has created a chart outlining the current state of the law in several APAC countries.
