Article 3


flag Argentina

Economic sanctions Procurement

Under Article 3, sanctions for violations of the Laws Prohibiting Child Labour and Protection of Young Workers (Law No. 26,390 and sec. 148 bis of the Criminal Code) will be communicated to the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security, by the Court, for their inclusion in the Public Registry of Employers with Labour Sanctions (REPSAL).


Inclusion in the REPSAL registry restricts businesses from contracting with Federal entities and from receiving any benefits or credit from public financial entities. Please see Article 13 in this database for more information on the consequences of inclusion in the REPSAL registry. As of 1 June, 2015, there are over 700 employers registered on the REPSAL list, involving almost 25,000 employees (this last number represents only the registered workers, thus one could assume the actual number is considerably greater).
