The Government has immediately unlocked the negotiations with employers and unions to extend social protection schemes for impairments and limitations on the activity of companies by health alertness.
Sources of the Ministry of Labor confirmed the principle of agreement, whose period extends until next February 28, and that it must be ratified by the executives of unions and employers. Social Security has had important assignments regarding its initial offer.
These assignments represent improvements in the exemptions of the contributions paid by companies in Erte by their templates, the main demand for employers and self-employed. In fact, the pre-agreement is pending that CEOE will give its definitive approval, as it is linked to the extension of autonomous benefits, which will be extended until January 31.
Minister José Luis Escrivá had stepped on the accelerator at his first last week's proposal and, to the incentives for the reactivation of the current scheme, he had added the commitment that the companies welcomed for the aid scheme established training plans for their employees. He crashed against the refusal of all social agents.
Entrepreneurs who come to the negotiation tables The offer seemed insufficient, considering that it is the administration that imposes the limitations. This morning, in the midst of strong criticism of him about a reform of pensions that promotes being able to work until age 75, Escrivá worked in improving the offer of him.
Finally, incentives to training increase up to 40% exoneration in the case of companies of more than 10 workers who do not provide training and double, 80% in the event that it is taught. For companies with up to 10 workers, incentives will consist of 50% exoneration if there is no training and 80% if there is.
In this way, numerous companies that see limited their activity in the coming months by administrative decisions related to the Covid will see increase exonerations in social security contributions. Since the current scheme establishes minor benefits as time passes, today, companies with templates below 50 workers can achieve benefits up to 75%, while those that exceed that ribbon have a stop of 65% .
Looking for its execution by the companies in trouble, the complexity of the new aid scheme has led to the conditions of the last extension during the month of October, while the current ones will enter into force as of November. It is another relevant change with respect to the initial pretensions of the Government, which had established a period of 10 days from the next Friday to request aid, granting the negative administrative silence, that is, denying access to the scheme by way of not Answer the requests.
For its part, UGT and CCOO trade unions have shown more determined support to the accord. The so-called accountant at zero, by which people affected by ERTE do not consume their right to provision of unemployment, extends a year including people with fixed discontinuous contracts. They also maintain penalties in dismissals for six months for the Companies that have benefited from aid.Updated Date: 27 September 2021, 15:26
