On August 5, 2021, the Department of Labour, by means of ruling No. 1946/029, issued a statement on the possibility of signing collective bargaining agreements using electronic methods. Specifically, the ruling states the following:
i) Collective instruments are among those that can be created and recorded exclusively by electronic methods.
ii) Since they are private documents, collective instruments only require a simple electronic signature for their validity.
iii) Since collective instruments can be created and signed by electronic methods, they can be sent to the Department of Labour for registration using also digital tools.
Should you require additional information on this matter, please contact: Alfred Sherman (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Felipe Ovalle (email@example.com).
