The Superior Court of Justice of the Province rejected the appeal for reconsideration presented by judicial employees who refuse to be vaccinated against the coronavirus to return to work in person and ratified that in that case they must present a negative PCR test every three days.
In its rejection, the highest court maintains that at no time was the coercive or forced vaccination of any worker ordered, but that it was established that they must work in person by presenting that certificate within the stipulated deadlines.
In this sense, it established that the provisions imply restrictions strictly limited in time that were adopted in the framework of the pandemic and in the face of the detection of new highly transmissible variants in the province, such as the Delta.
It concludes that the regulation does not appear as unreasonable or disproportionate, and on the contrary is adequate or suitable for the achievement of constitutionally valid purposes such as the protection of the health of judicial workers and public health in general.
For his part, Ricardo Rosenberg, General Administrator of the Judicial Power of the Province of Córdoba, confirmed the rejection of the proposal of some judicial employees, which will be notified immediately and pointed out that the arguments are “solid and originating in the greatest sense common, which is intended to protect the health of the judicial community and the wider community “.
It should be remembered that as of September 1, the Judicial Power of the Province established the return to the presence of its agents, and that those who were not vaccinated had to present a PCR test every 72 hours, faced with their own resources, to attend their work places. Those who do not comply with these regulations will be discharged without pay. Only agents with immunodeficiencies, cancer patients and transplants will be exempted from this regulation.
The controversy was generated because many employees of the Justice of Córdoba, resist working in person together with those colleagues who were not vaccinated against the coronavirus and who are being intimidated to return to perform their tasks in their usual places of work.
