Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Este documento de la División de Análisis Macroeconómico realiza un análisis del impacto de las medidas de confinamiento implementadas desde marzo de 2020 para evitar una propagación masiva de la pandemia COVID-19 sobre el empleo en Colombia. Se realiza un análisis de la dinámica del mercado laboral colombiano durante la fase de recuperación hasta septiembre de 2020, con enfoques sectoriales, territoriales y de género. Se concluye que la recuperación de la economía colombiana deberá tener en cuenta los diversos aspectos del mercado laboral, haciendo absolutamente necesaria una agenda de reformas que fomente la formalidad, solucione problemas educativos y de reentrenamiento, y resuelva distorsiones significativas en el funcionamiento del mercado laboral.
