Argentina: Employers can ask Vaccinated Employees to attend the Workplace

The Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security issued joint resolution 4/2021, which provides that employers may ask all personnel, who have received at least the first vaccine against COVID-19, to work at the workplace, except for those employees who are included in the at-risk groups.

The resolution also sets forth that those employees who are asked to work at the workplace must submit a reliable proof of the corresponding vaccination, or declare, as a sworn statement, the reasons why they did not have access to the vaccination.

Lastly, the resolution provides that those employees who have the possibility of receiving the vaccine and choose not to be vaccinated, must act in good faith, and do everything in their power to mitigate the damages that their decision may cause to their employer.
