Open Unemployment Disguised unemployment
(i) Open employment refers to the situation in which an individual has no job and unable to earn his livelihood. (i) Disguised unemployment refers to the situation in which people work at a place where there is no more people are required. The situation in which people are apparently working but all of them are made to work less then their potential.
(ii) This unemployment is clearly visible. (ii) This unemployment is hidden.
(iii) People's unemployment will affect the production of goods and services in an economy. (iii) People's unemployment won't affect the production of goods and services because here already more than requirement of people are working so if they leave that's not a big deal.

Example of Open unemployment :- Educated unemployed OR unemployment due to migration from rural area to urban area.

Example of Disguised unemployment :-Suppose three brothers are running a shop and if one brother is withdrawn from the shop and output/sales of that shop remains unaffected. OR whole family of a farmer is engaged in farming,even if we remove one or two members of the family to other jobs, then also production of the farm remains the same.
