Television network Teleamazonas conducted an interview with our partner Edmundo Ramos as an expert on labor practices to find out his opinion on the labor changes that began to take place since last March, following the arrival of the health crisis caused by Covid-19. These changes shall be implemented, after the Ministry of Labor issued the agreements with the guidelines for the application of the registration of the types of work and the emerging working-day reduction.
“These agreements specify the procedure to be followed and the deadlines in those cases where employers have already implemented these alternatives,” explained our Partner.
Regarding compensations, within the interview it was clarified that in the event of layoff during the emerging working-day reduction, these compensations, payments and other legal benefits will be calculated based on the salary received by the employee before the reduction.
These guidelines are based on what is stated in the Humanitarian Support Law approved by the National Assembly. In an example given in the interview, it is explained that the emerging contract duly signed shall be registered by the employer in the “Single Work System” (SUT) within fifteen days from the date of execution.
“In the case of emerging working-day reduction, it is established that this reduction shall not be applied if another of the reduction formulas contemplated by law is in force at the time,” adds Ramos.
