But how do the controls work, what does the worker without a green certificate risk and what are the penalties for companies that do not carry out the checks required by law? The government responds in the Faqs published on the official website. VERIFICATION OF THE GREEN PASS, HOW IT WORKS IN THE COMPANY “Each administration / company is autonomous in organizing the controls, in compliance with the privacy regulations and the guidelines issued with the dPCM 12 October 2021. Employers – we read in the faq – define the operating procedures for the organization of checks, including random checks, providing priority, where possible, that such checks are carried out at the time of access to the workplace, and identify with a formal deed the persons in charge of ascertaining violations of the obligations. It is advisable to use verification methods that do not cause delays or queues at the entrance. In public administrations, where the verification does not take place at the time of access to the workplace, it must take place on a daily basis, primarily in the morning slot of the working day, can be generalized or sample, provided that not less than 20% of the staff present you in service and with a rotation criterion that ensures, over time, control over all employees “. specific functions that allow a daily and automated verification of the possession of certifications.
