The Ministry of Labor confirmed that until next Tuesday “the prohibition to go to places of employment” continues, in accordance with the provisions of articles 1 and 2 of the Decree of Need and Urgency (DNU) 297/20.
He also pointed out that those who have agreed to carry out their work from the place of isolation following the coronavirus pandemic will continue with this methodology.
“Those who from Friday 20 to March 31 have agreed to such tasks, will continue to perform it remotely,” said a job statement.
Work indicated that only “people affected by essential activities and services in the emergency, according to article 6 of the rule,” are excepted, adding that the continuity of these activities is “an exceptional requirement of the national economy.”
“All workers were guaranteed that beyond the obligation not to go to the workplace and to stay at home to fulfill social, preventive and compulsory isolation, they will receive their usual income, as determined by resolution 219/20 of the Ministry of Labor “conducted by Claudio Moroni, he concluded.
The Ministry of Labor also announced that the expiration of unemployment benefits originating between February 1 and April 1, 2020 will be extended until May 31, “as a result of the impact generated in the economy by the crisis health “caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Through a statement, the portfolio headed by Claudio Moroni stated that Resolution 260/2020 of the Executive Power “establishes that the benefit be extended to those beneficiaries who have not yet been able to re-enter the labor market.”
“This measure is taken as a result of the impact on the economy generated by the current health crisis, and the inability of the beneficiaries of this system to re-enter employment”, added.
In this situation, Work stressed that “the implementation of policies aimed at guaranteeing additional financial aid is necessary.”
“The extension fees will be monthly, without being able to apply the single payment method provided for in article 127 of Law 24,013, while the amount of the fees will be equivalent to 70% of the original benefit,” the ministerial information clarified.
In this sense, he pointed out that “the National Social Security Administration will be in charge of carrying out the computer crossings and other controls to determine who can access the benefit extension.”
“While the Ministry of Employment will continue to control the requirements to maintain the continuity of this benefit,” he said.
