Had a day fighting one of the regional offices demanding that their client expected a global Covid procedure and track and trace system for all our employees, preferably with an App. This particular office is obsessed with Apps.
It got to the stage where they resorted to ''Bottom line is....'' and accusing us of deliberately exposing people to the virus on the basis that one of our employees caught the virus in Italy and was ''contaminated'' spreading it around on purpose.
The Covid protocols in Italy are extremely tight with track and trace provided by local Health Authorities. Can you imagine a company interjecting and imposing an additional layer on top of that with their own processes that could be in conflict with local legislation and infringing on medical privacy laws? Sharing someone's medical information across borders in conflict with GDPR? Called BS on that.
Well at least that's a bit better than when this subsidiary started moaning about costs to set up their people to work remotely. Sure when we needed to evacuate the office it was do anything and everything possible. When they got the bill they nickel and dimed discrepancies down to the 4 figure level including only paying for overtime for full time staff who assisted whilst considering the regular hours as sunk cost they would have incurred anyway. I said I'd move their people back into the office so they can infect and kill each other for free rather than debate this absurdity.
