Uruguay: COVID-19 impact on employment

Uruguay’s Executive Branch has resolved that employees of companies affiliated with the Social Security Administration (BPS) who are certified to quarantine due to potential risk of COVID-19 contagion will be paid sickness benefits during the quarantine period. This decision does not cover employee groups not under the BPS system. It also does not stipulate whether employees would be covered under occupational illness insurance by the government insurer Banco de Seguros if the illness is contracted at the workplace and while working.
