According to the joint decision of the ministry, and until the epidemiological burden is reduced, private sector workers (retail, catering, financial and insurance activities, transport, cleaning services, hairdressing salons, beauty salons, gambling establishments and bookmakers, driving schools) must conduct Self test without fail, twice a week.
One of the two tests will be provided free of charge in pharmacies, and the other will be paid by the employer. However, there are many complaints that have reached ΓΣΕΕ, labor centers, federations and primary unions from employees that companies refuse to bear the costs and force staff to purchase tests at their own expense!
The Athens Labor Center, in its statement, demands that “the government and the competent control authorities take up the problem and carry out checks on the observance of the law. And in no case did they allow employers to load “this burden” on their employees, forcing them to pay for tests out of their own pockets.
