The pandemic of Covid-19 has changed many aspects of our life. Acting in this new reality LDAs from Serbia, Subotica and Knjaževac, have redesigned one of the activities within the project Regional Youth Compact for Europe into a short info campaign for social networks on the essential workers’ rights during the pandemic.
The campaign has been based on the Regulation of the Government of Serbia on the organization of work of employers during the state of emergency and the broader framework of the acquis in EU negotiation Chapter 19: Social policy and employment.
Recognizing the importance to be informed in order to protect ourselves from possible violations of our workers’ rights, the campaign shared information related to the main elements of the aforementioned Regulation such as organization of work from home, organization of work for employed parents with children under 12 y.o., the right to salaries in self-imposed isolation / quarantine, etc.
This campaign was created in the framework of the project Regional Youth Compact for Europe financially supported by the European union and the Balkan Trust for Democracy, a project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
