The contributory unemployment benefit, better known as ‘unemployment’, is compatible with certain activities that we can carry out at the same time that it is collected. One of them is working in the company of a relative, although under a series of conditions.
The State Public Employment Service (SEPE) informs that unemployment benefit can be collected, unemployment, provided that you work in the company of a relative with whom you do not live, that the company is a commercial or labor company and when the person concerned does not have a social participation in said company. In addition, the relative in question cannot accumulate 50% of the company.
The limit to define a family range is consanguinity or affinity up to the second degree. This includes parents, children, grandparents and siblings, both their own and those of our spouse, if applicable.
In order to avoid fraudulent situations, the SEPE informs that it will dedicate its efforts to corroborate that there is no coexistence relationship and that it can be verified that, in effect, there is a demonstrable employment relationship.
For all this, the body announces that it will take into account, jointly, “the time of provision of services and contribution to Social Security, if there has been a modification of the affiliation regime, if it is part of another family nucleus, existence of an effective job, remoteness or proximity of the degree of kinship, antecedents regarding the receipt of benefits for termination in a previous employment relationship with the same employer “, among other things.
However, the SEPE ensures that, if you are less than 30 years old and the self-employed father or mother with whom you live hires you as an employee, you will not contribute to unemployment benefit nor will you be entitled to it, but in the If you stop working and had previous contributions, you could receive unemployment benefit or, failing that, the subsidy for insufficient contributions.
Once those 30 years have elapsed, and if the employment relationship in which they are employed is maintained, the worker may begin to contribute for unemployment.
