On June 14, 2020, the Executive Power issued a new guidance to complement the Health and Safety Bylaws, designed to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19. Under the guidance, all employers must implement protocols for social distancing, maintenance of hygiene, employee transportation and sick leaves. Failure to comply is deemed a violation of the employment laws. The new guidelines went into effect on June 18, 2020.
