The reform excludes from payment cargo carriers that already have private insurance coverage in place in Central America.
From a press release by the Legislative Assembly of El Salvador:
With 54 votes in plenary legislature, Section 20 of the Special Law for the Establishment of the Fund for the Care of Traffic Accident Victims (Fonat) was reformed to incorporate a clause that excludes payment of the special contribution by freight vehicles with foreign plates, for those who already have an insurance policy against accidents and / or damage to third parties, to ensure compensation both in terms of health as well as financially, with current coverage level in Central America, including El Salvador.
The regulation increases the size of the "aguinaldo" (extra salary at the end of the year), depending on the number of worked years.
Those who have been working in a company for between 1 and 3 years will receive 15 days worth of 'aguinaldo' (end of year salary payment), those with between 3 and 10 years will receive 19 days worth of aguinaldo, and those who have worked for more than 10 years, will receive 21 days worth of aguinaldo.
