Labour Market Statistics, IES Analysis – November 2020

IES Briefing Note Tuesday 10 November 2020 Labour Market Statistics, November 2020 Today’s figures show that the labour market continued to weaken through July to September, weighed down by the ongoing fallout from the first lockdown.  Employment fell and unemployment rose, with the latter reaching its highest since late 2016.  Lower employment has been driven both by more people leaving work, and fewer people moving (back) into it – with job separations dominating during lockdown itself, but weak hiring playing more of a role in the recovery. Redundancies reached a new peak in the three months to September, and we forecast that these will continue to rise in the next two months before falling back in the new year.  While the growth in redundancies is alarming, today’s figures have not been anywhere near as bad as they could have been.
