The Group of Business Entities of Córdoba (G6) issued a statement in which it expressed its rejection of the bill, which has already been sanctioned in the Chamber of Deputies and which seeks to establish new regulations on teleworking.
The opinion of the G6 is that this initiative “can generate extremely negative effects on the labor market”, because “instead of encouraging the creation of new sources of employment, the way in which the regulations are proposed comes to discourage companies from choosing for this modality ”that grew during the quarantine due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
For Cordovan business associations, remote work already has regulatory and protection tools in the current labor legislation and a new law risks adding complexity, overlapping criteria and an unnecessary source of litigation.
From this point of view, the G6 remarked that the conditions in which telework should be developed should be discussed within the collective agreements.
“Unlike the legislative vision, we understand that the scope to deal with specific cases or particularities of the modality should be negotiation within the framework of the collective agreements that regulate each branch or activity,” said the G6.
Another criticism is that “the project that Congress is dealing with clearly does not contemplate the dynamism of economic activities, much less the advance of new technologies.”
The G6 noted in this regard that regulating teleworking through a law imposes a rigid framework where a long legislative process should go through for each update or adaptation to the reality of economic activity.
“From the different sectors of production, numerous technical analyzes and contributions have been sent to legislators that would allow achieving a modern vision adjusted to the realities of work, always respecting the rights and obligations of workers and employers. Unfortunately, these perspectives have not been considered to enrich the initiative ”, questioned the G6.
And he concluded: “What is most worrying is that, at a time when economic recovery is key to overcoming the immense impact caused by the Covid pandemic19, bills are being carried out that, instead of encouraging work, produce greater obstacles to productive activity and job creation ”.
