Spanish dismissal becomes less expensive for all types of Spanish labour contracts, and some aid has been provided to dismiss employees with a high rates of absentee days. Contact the Spanish labour lawyers of Arcos & Lamers Asociados for initial additional information free of charge.
Large employees layoff procedures can take place without the need of an agreement with the Labour authorities (Expedientes de Regulación de Empleos (E.R.E)) .
Changes for Spanish part-time contracts and the introduction of a new low rated Social Security Spanish labour contracts for small and medium sized Spanish companies.
The Spanish Labour and Legal advisers of Arcos & Lamers Asociados settled at the Costa del Sol have the pleasure to set out below the main changes to take into account:
1) Cooperation in creating employment.
Spanish temporary employment companies are temporally authorized to act as private placement agencies as they have a wide network of branches throughout the territory and with extensive experience in the labour market.
2) Formation Right.
Employees with more than one year of seniority will have the right to a paid leave of 20 hours for training activities whose content must be linked to the work position they have.
3) The dismissal with 33 days.
For new Spanish or foreign employees hired by a Spanish company and as per the new Spanish Law, the maximum compensation due to the employee as a consequence of an unfair dismissal will go down to 33 days of salary per worked year, regardless of the type of contract, and with a maximum of 24 months. Of course this is applicable for new employees.
For those employees who were already providing their services for the Spanish company prior to the new Spanish Labour Law, the compensation for unlawful dismissal should be calculated by means of two instalments: 45 days per year worked up the 11th February 2012 and 33 days per year worked from 12th February 2012 onwards.
4) Additional power when internal agreements are reached.
Possibility to create Spanish company agreements with the employees (convenio de empresas) having these agreements priority on those of the sectorial agreements, facilitating the modification of days, hours, wages and change of positions.
5) Elimination of Legal wages.
At the previous law, the considered unlawful dismissed employee had a right to receive salaries during the whole of the legal procedure in the event that a Spanish court case was started and until the Judgment did appear. From now on, this right has gone away with the wind unless it is a void dismissal.
