Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The recent introduction of art. 42 d.l. n. 18/2020, in the part in which it provided that the coronavirus infection contracted in the workplace gives rise to INAIL compensation, has aroused considerable discontent among entrepreneurs, worried that this rule extends the criminal risks they are ordinarily burdened with . This was followed by the request, to the Government and Legislator, for a regulatory intervention - the so-called criminal shield - aimed at averting this possibility. In reality, as specified by the same social security institution, the provision in question has no effect on the employer's responsibilities, which are and remain governed by the principles in force in criminal matters. Therefore, it is very perplexing that Parliament has followed up on this request, through the approval of a specific rule aimed at meeting the demands of the productive world. On closer inspection, however, the initiative seems justified by purely electoral purposes, as it has no real legal consequences.
