    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – As in the last elections in February, employers must allow their employees to take time to vote on Sunday, the day for the second round of presidential elections.

    Although there is no set time allotted, it is assumed that this right is permitted on good faith and loyalty, so it calls for workers to not abuse the privilege and use this time for different activities.

    “Another thing to remember is that employers should not the influence decisions of workers, tell them who to vote for, and workers in turn have obligations such as good faith and to not abuse the time that is given by the employer to go do something other than vote or even after the votes to go to other activities when they are within working hours,” said Eric Briones, a specialist in labor law.

    In the event that the employer refuses to provide the time for employees to cast their votes, they are subject to an offense under Article 614 of the Labor Code with wage penalties imposed by a justice of the Republic.

    These penalties range from 1-23 minimum wages, i.e. from ¢399,400 to ¢9,186,200.
