RSM: Update Alert
Dear Clients, Friends and Partners,
Our experts have created an update regarding the latest Labour provisions in relation to occupational measures and general measures announced recently by the Government in an effort to protect public health and minimize the risk of the further spreading of the virus within the nation. These measures are in effect as of Saturday 7 November up until Monday the 30th of November as indicated in the Government Gazette (FEK 4899/Β΄/6.11.2020).
This special report has been translated into English for your convenience and can also be found on our website, alongside all the updates that have been sent out in Greek this week.
Moreover, please note that on Wednesday afternoon, the Deputy Minister announced further measures in terms of the restriction of movement of citizens and also in terms of increasing remote working where possible. These measures have not taken the form of a Ministerial Decision and have not yet been published in the Government Gazette, however we assume that we will shortly have further information to share wit you. One of the measures mentioned was that as of Friday the 13th of November, each company will need to be in a position to demonstrate an “Essay” clearly explaining the exact reasons why its employees physical presence is deemed necessary. We have no relevant further instructions yet unfortunately but we simply wanted to alert you to the possibility of this become a requirement in the next few days.
Our team is always at your disposal should you require any further information or clarifications.
We wish you, your teams and your families all the very best and we hope you all #staysafe #stayhealthy and #staypositive.
All the best,
