Law of Safe Return in Companies
The Chilean government enacted the Law of Safe Return to Face-to-Face Work, a regulation that contemplates three key points so that the gradual return to the offices complies with the regulations while the health alert is in force.
On the one hand, the law established the obligation for the employer to offer remote work to people at high health risk or who are in the care of minors, the elderly or people with disabilities.
The second point indicates that medical licenses for Covid-19 are paid from the first day, regardless of the time for which the medical rest was granted.
Finally, the regulations established a mandatory individual insurance associated with the virus, in favor of private sector workers who perform face-to-face, total or partial work.
The law values the implementation of these new measures, as it constitutes an opportunity for organizations to design the way they will work and also protect their workers in this new scenario.
