A while ago I commented on or na bill had passed the Uruguayan Senate in reference to special licenses. At the time of publication of the post regulation returned to the Chamber of Deputies before being made a series of changes. Among other things, to change the day they were granted to workers on leave for study, which went from 12 to 18.
Following these changes, on September 11 the Act was promulgated and came into force on October 7. The workers happy, not the corporate sector. Different entrepreneurs expressed their annoyance to feel that the new regulations will directly affect the companies that count on its staff with a high number of students, such as call center or micro and small enterprises.
As an indication of the impact of the Act, past few days a company dedicated to the services of call center decided not to settle in Uruguay, to derail his call for candidates. The company had decided to make it a requirement “not to be a student.”
For Ricardo Posada of the National Association of Micro and Small Enterprise, the law is bad and must be “repealed” or at least left in abeyance until it could limit their future application.
“If I have two employees in December can lose 50% of staff. It can also happen to studies accounting, which tend to hire many students and usually have key moments at year’s end, with the balance sheets. Would you give license to all its employees students, “Posada said to the newspaper El Pais.
In less than a month passed the Act, the Executive assesses send to parliament a draft law amending down (as stipulated the original draft), 18 to 12 days to be granted to students to the exam preparation. Comings and turns of a law that gives shows how difficult it is Congenies the interests of the employer to the employee.
