Mandatory green pass at private sector workplaces - operational tips 

As it is known, starting from October 15 until December 31, 2021 (the deadline set for the end of the state of emergency), the obligation to possess – and to show on request – the “green pass” 1 has been extended to all workers, including those of the private sector, in order to allow their access to workplaces.  With regard to this matter, Law Decree no. 127/2021 - published in the Official Gazzette - states that this obligation indistinctly applies “to all people who perform, for any reason in the workplace, their working activity as trainee or volunteers, even on the basis of contracts with third parties”, which means that this obligation applies to all kinds of working relationships (e.g., self-employed workers, temporary workers, workers on assignment, professionals, stagiaires, staff of contractors/suppliers, etc.)2. All employers are in charge of monitoring the real ownership of the “green pass” – under penalty of the amount from 400 to 1000 euros (doubled in case of a reiteration) –.
