Proyecto bipartita para proteger pacientes de cannabis medicinal de discrimen en el empleo

Aug 22, 2017 Written by  Redacción LA ESQUINA

Los representantes Jesús Manuel Ortiz y Antonio “Tony” Soto Torres radicaron el P. de C. 1197 que busca proteger a los pacientes de cannabis medicinal de ser despedidos de sus trabajos por beneficiarse de dicho tratamientos.

Ortiz aseguró que "la aprobación de este proyecto le daría la tranquilidad al empleado-paciente de beneficiarse del tratamiento de cannabis medicinal sin temor de ser penalizado y hasta despedido de su empleo. Incluso, la medida protege al paciente desde el proceso de reclutamiento y contratación. El hecho de ser paciente tratando sus condiciones con cannabis medicinal no puede ser excusa para ser discriminado en el empleo”, afirmó el representante popular.

Por su parte, el representante penepé Soto Torres, quien también preside la Comisión de Hacienda de la Cámara afirmó que "aunque la recién aprobada Ley 42-2017 permite el uso del cannabis medicinal, la misma, no protege a los empleados que lo utilizan de ser penalizados por aprovechar dicho tratamiento. Además, para muchos de estos pacientes, el cannabis medicinal puede ser la mejor o única forma de alivio disponible para sus respectivas condiciones. Por eso, con esta medida lo que buscamos es atemperar el estado de derecho para proteger al empleado-paciente”.

Los representantes hicieron hincapié en que la medida incorpora ciertas excepciones a la protección del empleado-paciente si el patrono logra probar que la utilización del cannabis medicinal representa peligro o interfiere con sus funciones de trabajo; pone en riesgo una certificación o permiso expedido por el gobierno federal; o el empleado ingiera los medicamentos en horas laborables sin autorización, entre otras.

    Hi there, just wanted to share with you that we had a great time at Marina de Bolnuevo in September of this year (http://www.marinadebolnuevo.co.uk/about-bolnuevo). We flew into San Javier and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are sublime, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The cafes were great, with paella on the beach a delight and managed a trip to the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again in 2018. Look forward to catching up with you at Marina de Bolnuevo in the next few months. Thanks for reading Tony.

    Hello, just wanted to share with you that we had a great vacation at Marina de Bolnuevo in August of this year (http://www.marinadebolnuevo.co.uk/about-bolnuevo). We flew into San Javier and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are fantastic, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The bars were great, with paella on the beach a must and managed a trip to the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again next year. Look forward to seeing you at Marina de Bolnuevo in the next few months. Thanks for reading Niall.

    Hello, just wanted to let you know that we had a great vacation at Marina de Bolnuevo in September of this year. We flew into Alicante and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are sublime, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The cafes were great, with paella on the beach a highlight and managed a trip to the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures.
