Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "The estimation of impacts of the coronavirus on temporary layoffs and unemployment periods is based on a statistical forecasting model."

"The figures do not provide information on the total or cumulative number of temporary layoffs or unemployed individuals. There can be delays in the reporting of the figures. One person can have several periods of temporary layoffs."

"The period of notice before lay-off is temporarily reduced from 14 days to five days. This amendment is valid from 1 April to 31 December 2020. It is intended to help companies to overcome the acute crisis and avoid unnecessary bankruptcies."
