Employers Can Suggest a Financial Entity, But Never Force Workers
Labor attorney Camilo Cuervo was interviewed by Asuntos Legales about employees' financial rights in Colombia. The country's Constitutional Court, through judgment C-041 of 2000, determined that employers can’t force their employees to open a bank account in a certain bank. Workers have their own free will and can pick the financial entity where they’ll get their paychecks.
“Employers can recommend opening a certain account, but they can never force workers to get it,” said Mr. Cuervo.
