The Employers and Industrialists Federation (OEV) urged members on Wednesday to be flexible with employees as many of them return to work on Thursday after the lifting of the lockdown restrictions.

OEV stressed that many of the returning employees were parents and would possibly find themselves in a difficult situation with some schools classes, and kindergartens, still shut.

“In order for the economy to gradually go back to normal, we are calling on our members to make reasonable arrangements with working parents to facilitate the proper care of their children during or after school.

“That’s why we urge businesses to use common sense and good faith regarding their employees as some readjustments might be necessary for the return to normality,” the statement concluded.
