The Covid-19 pandemic has devastated the world of work, particularly labour. Worldwide economic crises and unemployment present a difficult road ahead in ensuring the sound health and productivity of labour. Among developing countries, India has been at the centre stage of this catastrophe, with millions of labourers suddenly losing their jobs and in desperate need of livelihoods to survive. Emergency policy measures undertaken to sustain industrial growth in the crises may not be comforting to the labour in India in the long run. This paper is intended to help policymakers and the civil engineering community in meeting the urgency of resolving the adverse impacts of the Covid-19 crisis.
