Labor and Employment Law

In its January 19, 2022 edition, the Official State Gazette (BOE) published a corrigendum to Royal Decree-Law 32/2021, of December 28, 2021, on urgent measures for labor reform, ensuring stable employment and transforming the labor market.
It was published in the Official Gazette Ordinance no. 38/2022, of January 17, which sets out the new 'Sustainable Employment Commitment' measure. In essence, this regulation awards employers economically for entering into open-ended employment contract with unemployed people registered at the Employment and Vocational Training Institute (IEFP).
Following the announcement of the labor reform agreement, the BOE published the text that, among other things, modifies the type of contracts, establishes new flexibility mechanisms and reintroduces the ultra-activity of collective bargaining agreements. 
Decree-Law no. 119/2021, was published in Official Gazette, increasing the minimum amount of unemployment subsidy (employees) and establishing the enhancement of this subsidy, as well as of the subsidy for termination of activity (economically dependent self-employed workers) and of the subsidy for termination of professional activity (Members of the Board, directors and self-employed workers with a corporate activity) to beneficiaries in a situation of special necessity.
