The green pass in Italy from 15 October becomes mandatory for work, public and private. The government, with the answers to the Faq, clarifies the rules: from checks to sanctions, from hairdressers to taxis.
Each administration or company is autonomous in organizing the controls. Employers define the operating procedures for organizing checks, including random checks, providing priority, where possible, for such checks to be carried out at the time of access to the workplace. “It is advisable to use verification methods that do not lead to delays or queues at the entrance. In public administrations, the verification, which must take place on a daily basis, primarily in the morning slot of the working day, can be generalized or on a sample basis, provided that it is not less to 20% of the staff present in service and with a rotation criterion that ensures, over time, control over all employees “, explains Palazzo Chigi.
In addition to the VerificationC19 app, specific features will be made available to employers, both public and private, to allow for a daily and automated verification of the possession of certifications. These checks may take place through:
– the integration of the QR code reading and verification system of the green certificate in the physical access control systems, including those for detecting attendance or temperature;
– for public bodies adhering to the NoiPA Platform, created by the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the asynchronous interaction between the same and the National DGC-Platform;
– for employers with more than 50 employees, both private and public who are not members of NoiPA, the asynchronous interaction between the INPS institutional portal and the national platform-DGC;
– for public administrations with at least 1,000 employees, also with service offices located in several physical locations, an application interoperability, in asynchronous mode, between the IT personnel management systems of the, and the national platform-DGC.
GREEN PASS AND NOT VACCINATED
What happens to those who cannot receive the vaccine for health reasons? “Those who, for proven health reasons, cannot carry out the vaccine against COVID-19, must show a certificate containing the appropriate ‘QR code’ being prepared”, reads the Faq. “Pending the release of the relative application, exempt personnel – after having sent the relative health documentation to the competent doctor of the administration to which they belong – will not be subject to any checks”.
GREEN PASS COMING SOON
For those who are entitled to the green pass but have not yet received the certificate, “it will be possible to use the documents issued, in paper or digital format, by public and private health facilities, pharmacies, analysis laboratories, general practitioners and by free choice pediatricians “.
WORKER WITHOUT GREEN PASS, SANCTIONS
“The worker, public or private, is considered unjustified absentee, without the right to a salary, until the presentation of the green pass” if he goes to work without the certificate.
The worker who enters the workplace without a green pass faces a fine ranging from 600 to 1,500 euros. Any disciplinary sanctions envisaged by sector collective agreements are also applied.
“In addition to the salary, any other component of the salary, even of a social security nature, having a fixed and continuous nature, accessory or indemnity, foreseen for the working day not performed, will no longer be paid to the worker without the green pass. contribute to the accrual of holidays and involve the loss of the relative length of service “, reads the Faq.
The employer who does not check compliance with the rules on the green pass risks an administrative penalty ranging from 400 to 1,000 euros.
GREEN PASS, BEAUTICIANS AND HAIRDRESSERS
Hairdressers and beauticians do not have to ask customers for the green pass. “Do hairdressers, beauticians and other operators in the personal services sector have to check the green pass of their customers? And do customers have to check the green pass of these operators? The business owner must check the pass of any employees but must not ask for it from customers, nor are they required to ask for it from those who carry out the work in question “, explains Palazzo Chigi.
GREEN PASS AND TAXI
How should customers behave when they get on board a taxi or an NCC car? “Customers are not required to verify the green pass of taxi drivers or NCC drivers”.
