COVID-19 A PROFESSIONAL DISEASE – YES OR NO?

Must Read

As a socially responsible organization, Confederation of Autonomous Trade Unions of Serbia focuses on the issue whether there is a possibility to include COVID-19 into the list of professional diseases in order to protect primarily health workers who risk their lives in the fight against corona virus.
We think that the decision to include COVID-19 into the list of professional diseases would considerably improve workers’ financial status, having in mind that professional diseases are treated in a way that a worker is provided with a 100% compensation of salary during the sick leave, but it would also contribute to a more humane and more responsible attitude of the society towards the health of Serbian employees.
Due to this cause, Confederation of Autonomous Trade Unions of Serbia organized a round table a few days ago. The round table was attended by the experts in occupational medicine, representatives of the Government – Ministry of Health and Ministry of Labour, expert public and the media.
