Hi,

"The adverse effect of COVID-19 on the economic situation of participants and their coping strategies varied depending on whether they were employers or employees."


Can I replace the underlined part with "employment status"?


Thanks!

Yes, but the first version is clearer in meaning.

No. Employment status could be one of these:

employed full time
employed part time
unemployed, looking for a job
unemployed, not looking for a job (student, housewife, disabled)
retired
