Deputy Nicole Cruvinel (PSD) presented last Friday (10) A bill to prohibit the use of cellular appliances and electronic devices during the workday.
This means that officials will have to leave their personal smartphone disconnected while working, if the project turns law. According to the project text, via examination, only employees who use smartphones “for specific purpose of the employee’s labor” may be able to touch the appliance during the journey — i.e. a company device. According to Mr Cruvinel, “we watch every day the lack of attention of employees because of the private use of the cell phone.” The member has made it clear that businesses can already prohibit the use of cell phones, but it is necessary to create more specific labour regulations. What if an employee uses his cell phone in a forbidden time? Cruvinel believes that the employee may suffer “warnings, suspensions, or even the fair cause when applying the lighter feathers has no effect.” “In current reality the question Time and production of excellence is the high point in the professional relationships of day to day, but we watch every day the lack of attention of officials due to the private use of the cellular phone,” justifies the deputy.
