Coronavirus: Management of human resources in employment relationships


With Decree-Law 10-A/2020 of 13 March, the Government has introduced a broad set of exceptional and temporary measures on preventive isolation (often referred to as “quarantine”), social protection for those affected by the disease, absence from work due to the closure of educational establishments, and the arrangements for home working.

We have received a number of questions from employers and employees relating the management of human resources and employment relationships in face of the spread of the new Coronavirus, COVID-19. Due to the importance and huge impact of this situation, we prepared this document to highlight the extraordinary measures that have been adopted.
