Participation of workers

Yes. The Ministry of Business and Employment will set out the regulations so that voters who are working on 27 September may have up to four hours to exercise their right to vote within their working day. These hours will be paid. 

When the voter is working on a shortened timetable, a proportional reduction will be made in the leave allowed. 

The time allowed for going to vote must coincide with the opening hours of the polling station and when it falls will be decided by the employer.

Yes. Employers are entitled to ask their workers to submit supporting documents stating that they have voted issued by their polling station committee before paying the salary for the time spent on voting.

No. Workers whose working day timetable does not coincide in whole or in part with the timetable for voting are not entitled to take leave of absence to vote.
