The Certification of the need to travel for working reasons is not yet compulsory. That is, the authorities cannot require us to carry any documentation to prove that we are going to our workplace. But they can make checks to ensure that our cause is indeed justified.
Moreover, the law currently allows workers to travel to their workplace, on foot, by public transport, or in their vehicle.
While our first recommendation is to stay at home, and where possible, telework. Pending clarification by the competent authorities, from our Labour Consulting Department we recommend having this certificate.

Of course, it must be signed by whoever excites you. Also include all the information that is necessary to accredit these displacements. Including possible telephone contacts of the company in which it can be verified that the worker is in the staff.

We hope that in the next few days the measures introduced in the State of Alarm declaration will become more concrete.
Finally, once again, we would like to repeat three messages:
If you have any questions, we are at your disposal.
