The Chamber of Deputies approved on Wednesday (1) the project which creates social and health protection measures for delivery people as long as the public health emergency due to the Covid-19 pandemic lasts. The proposal will be sent for analysis by the Senate. Bill 1665/20, drafted by MP Ivan Valente (Psol-SP), was approved in the form of the substitute presented by the rapporteur, MP Fábio Trad (PSD-MS). The text specifies that the company must guarantee basic items for employees such as water, protective masks, hydro-alcoholic gel and access to the toilets.

The company must take out accident insurance, without excess, for the benefit of the deliverer registered with it, to cover exclusively accidents occurring during the period of withdrawal and delivery of the products. The insurance must necessarily cover personal accidents, permanent or temporary disability and death. In the event that the delivery person works for more than one delivery request, the indemnity must be paid by the insurer hired by the company for which the worker is providing service at the time of the accident.

If the delivery person tests positive for Covid-19, the company must pay financial assistance for 15 days equivalent to the average of the last three monthly payments received by him. This period may be extended two more times for the same period, if a medical report confirms the need for sick leave.

In addition, with regard to the contract or the registration term concluded between the applicator company and the delivery person, the text provides that the cases of blocking, suspension or exclusion of the delivery person by the digital platform must be expressly indicated. Due to non-compliance with the rules, the project punishes the applicator company or the company that uses its services with a warning and, in the event of a repeat offense, the payment of an administrative fine of R $ 5,000 per violation committed. .
