The Federal Comptroller’s Office has received complaints about companies that have forced employees to work even with symptoms of Covid-19 infection. Companies that continue to operate during the pandemic were also reported, even after decisions by state governments to close all non-essential businesses.
Altogether, almost 700 complaints were received between March 20 and April 2. Another 177 claims were made against hospitals by their employees. They complain about the lack of safety equipment and the negligence of these institutions in notifying the relevant authorities about positive Covid-19 cases.
Because of the pandemic, the Federal Comptroller’s Office created a direct channel for reporting problems related to Covid-19. Another measure adopted was the creation of a specific portal to centralize all the actions taken by the federal government so far.
