In May, like the previous month, further reduction of employment was observed in some entities, which translated into a decrease in average paid employment in the enterprise sector by 1.4 percent m-o-m. The decrease was the result of the end of fixed-term contracts, sometimes due to the pandemic, reduction of part- of full-time employment and also termination of employment contracts, according to GUS.
