At the meeting held on June 16, 2020, the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan S.M. Mirziyoyev noted (quoted): “The situation on coronavirus in the country is becoming increasingly complex. The time has come to significantly increase vigilance and responsibility in the fight against the pandemic. At this stage, we must strictly follow the rules of quarantine, no matter how difficult it may be. Each of us must do our job with care, carefully considering the consequences, deeply aware of our responsibility not only to ourselves, but also to our family and children. Otherwise, all our efforts will come to naught.
According to the letter of JSC “International Business Center”. (hereinafter referred to as Company or Lessor) under No. USA-41/01-143 of 01.06.2020, addressed to all managers of Lessees, using the right of the owner of the property complex, taking into account the fact that in one building the activity is carried out by other Lessees, in order to create working conditions ensuring health protection of all employees carrying out their work at the rental objects under quarantine, the Lessor sent a request:
a) Issue an internal order “On measures for the implementation of sanitary rules and regulations in quarantine due to the pandemic COVID-19”, according to the recommended form (attached), with subsequent sending to Lessor a copy of the order before 15.06.2020;
b) Taking into account the changes in working conditions related to the organization of the labor process due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is reasonable to conclude an additional agreement to the labor contract with each Lessee’s employee within 3 days.
It should be noted that Lessees, a certain part of whose staff continues to work remotely, should issue an internal order taking into account the composition of employees visiting the office (including periodically, on a non permanent basis).
Taking into account:
(a) Separate decisions of the Special Republican Commission for the preparation of a programme of measures to prevent the importation and spread of a new type of coronavirus in Uzbekistan (including with regard to the responsibility of the heads of organizations carrying out their activities, tightening of measures and initiation of an epidemiological investigation, in case of detection of cases of infection);
(b) Current statistics on the detection of the virus in the population and the worsening epidemiological situation noted by the President of Uzbekistan;
(c) Repeated advance notification by the Landlord of the need to take appropriate action;
d) Non-fulfillment (as of 19.06.2020) of requests No. USA-41/7-110 of 11.05.2020, No. USA-41/01-143 of 01.06.2020 by some Heads of Lessees, expressed in ignoring the need to take appropriate measures to minimize the risks of infection spread and incomplete understanding of the degree of their responsibility both for their team and for people working in the whole building –
We hereby inform you that in the absence (within 3 days) of a response letter from your organization with a copy of the requested documentation sent to the Lessor, the employees of these Lessees’ organizations (according to the list that is the addressee of this notice), admission to the building and the territory of the rental object may be restricted (without suspending the provision of rental services and taking into account the charging of rent by the Lessor, in accordance with the terms of concluded rental agreements).
Let me take this opportunity to express my assurance that in the period of coronavirus pandemic there is nothing more valuable for the Joint Stock Company “International Business Center” than the health of the people – employees of our Tenants and all current measures taken by the Lessor are aimed only at achieving this important goal, as well as taking care of you, your employees and all those who work in the building(s) of the Lessor.
