ARGENTINA – CLIENT ALERT SUSPENSION OF DISMISSAL WITHOUT CAUSE AND FOR REASONS OF FORCE MAJEURE

On March 31, 2020, the Decree of Necessity and Urgency No. 329/2020 was published in the Official Gazette, which prohibits dismissals without just cause and on the grounds of lack or reduction of work and force majeure for a period of 60 days from the date of its publication (that is, May 30, 2020).

Likewise, said decree prohibits suspensions for reasons of force majeure or lack or reduction of work for a period of 60 days from the date of its publication.

However, in the latter case, the suspensions agreed with the individual employee or with the union, which are approved by the labor authority, and against the payment of non-remunerative remuneration (Article 223 bis of the Argentine Labor Law) are excepted.
Said decree is already in force.
