Unemployment benefits' requests growth in Italy H1 2019-2020

In the first half of 2020, the number of requests for unemployment benefits increased by 12 percent compared to the same period of 2019. The months in which the number of applications peaked were March and April 2020, during the first wave of coronavirus infections and related lockdown. In particular, the number of requested submitted in April was more than double that of April 2019. However, since March 2020 the Italian government has imposed on companies a ban on layoffs of employees for economic reasons. The measure has been implemented to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on the job market.
