The new wave of the pandemic, consequence of the omicron variant, has fired again the number of contagious by Covid-19. Together with these cases, the low labor number has also reached levels not seen in months, which has made various organizations request that the high process is streamlined in cases without symptoms.
According to the latest social security data, over December 2021, 240,011 low processes were initiated, with an average duration of the temporary disability of 9.96 days. Throughout 2021 only in the months of January (636,260), February (360,677) and July (402,203), more processes began. In addition, although it is true that the time of low workers carrying down several months, we must bear in mind that the figure is conditioned by the non-completion of many of the processes that began in December.
Thus, from CEIM Enterprise Confederation of Madrid-CEOE, it has been requested that the discharge of the processes without symptoms before the "alarming increase in labor" has been streamlined. In a statement, the organization explains that the self-diagnosis tests have facilitated the identification of positives and, consequently, also the low infection or close contact. "Fortunately, both in one case and another, the development of severe symptomatology has not been generalized," nuance.
The negative consequence, says CEIM is that "more than 1,000% the labor casualties have increased in the Community of Madrid in just one month" and this has involved a cost for companies "that suffer from the temporary disability benefit of short Duration and that they have to reorganize suddenly almost daily. "
On the other hand, they consider that the collapse of primary care "prevents the necessary follow-up of the low" and this sometimes gives rise to "an undue duration of it", since workers can not obtain the discharge. For ceim, it should "speed up the high process" of those who have given positive in a self-diagnosis test and do not develop symptoms. His proposal is to simultaneously give low and high-day high days "except for those who after that period have symptoms that prevent work."Updated Date: 11 January 2022, 11:56
