June 9 will be synonymous with a new health protocol in companies: end of 100% teleworking and new rules for resuming activities between colleagues. But without releasing vigilance.
A new health protocol in companies has been published by the Ministry of Labor, as part of the country’s gradual deconfinement. The document sets up new steps for the resumption of activities ” under conditions that reconcile economic activity and employee protection “. The period during which teleworking was supposed to be the norm 100% of the time (with, however, the possibility for the employee to come back to the office one day a week) has ended. On the other hand, employers will still have to set a minimum number of teleworking days per week, for activities that allow it.
New health protocol
No question of completely eliminating telework, which remains recommended until September. The health context at the start of the school year will determine whether or not employers should continue this practice. For those who return to their workplace, the company will have to take all the necessary steps to ” limit the risk of crowds, crossings and concentration of staff and customers in order to facilitate compliance with physical distancing “. Each employee must have a workspace allowing them to respect the physical distance of at least one meter from another person.
Teleworking remains at least until the start of the school year
The employer will therefore have to review the organization of the workspace and, if necessary, review the time slots for ” avoid or limit as much as possible groupings and crossings “. In this context, audio or video meetings are preferred. On the other hand, the ” moments of conviviality », Like the starting drinks, are possible by respecting the barrier gestures and by grouping together outside if possible, and not with more than 25 people.
