Amendments to the Labor Contract Law (LCL)

SALARY EMBARGO
Article 147 of the Labor Contract Law, on wage garnishment, is amended. In this sense, the unseizability of the salary account is established, being determined that any preventive or executive embargo must be implemented to the employer. Once the embargo is stopped, the employer must give the worker a copy of the judicial measure within 48 hours.

WORK DOCUMENTATION
Article 54 of the LCL is amended in relation to labor documentation, adapting the requirements for the validity of records, forms or other comptroller elements.

FACULTY OF CONTROLLING WORKERS

The amendment of article 71 of the LCL, referring to the employer’s power to carry out checks on workers. In this sense, it is provided that the personal controls and those related to the activity of the worker must be known by him/her.

RE-ENTRY OF THE WORKER
Article 255 of the LCL is amended, eliminating the update of the compensation received in case of re-entry of the worker.

DUTY OF SAFETY
Article 75 of the LCL is amended, which deals with the duty of security by the employer. Among the main innovations are the employer’s obligation to observe the guidelines and limitations on the duration of work and to adopt measures to protect psycho-physical safety and the dignity of workers. On the other hand, it is provided that the worker can refuse employment benefits, without causing loss or reduction of remuneration, when there is an imminent danger of harm or if the employer’s obligations regarding occupational health and safety have been breached.
