The approach of a reopening of the dismissal conditions announced yesterday by the Minister of Labor, Yolanda Diaz It took the social agents and also the rest of the government by surprise. The First Vice President and Minister of Economic Affairs, Nadia Calvio, has chosen today not to rule on the initiative to introduce different compensation depending on the impact of the dismissal and argued that the idea has not yet been discussed by the government.

“I am not aware of these proposals, but in any case this has not been debated within the Government,” he assured in statements to the media from the headquarters of the European Parliament in Brussels, where he has traveled to participate in two conferences and meet with the Commissioner for the Economy, Paolo Gentiloni, reports Efe.

Calvio reacted in this way after Daz yesterday put on the table a proposal for “reparative or restorative” dismissals, with compensation calculated based on the personal and professional situation of the worker.

Díaz explained that in the matter of dismissal -one of the aspects that were initially going to be modified in the labor reform agreed upon last year but which was left out- the problem is not compensation.

Of course, he opted to harden the causes so that, “for reparative concepts” the dismissal can be more expensive without modifying the compensation scales. This reparative nature would vary depending on the profile of the worker and his chances of returning to a job after being unemployed.

Díaz has clarified today that he is not working on this matter, that it has arisen at the initiative of the UGT and that he is not reopening the debate either. compensation for dismissal, a claim maintained by the unions since in 2012 it was reduced from 45 to 33 days per year worked in the case of unfair dismissals.

“The reparative nature” of the compensation must be different, and this is taken into account in Europe, said the vice president, who has recognized that it is an issue that she is dealing with “well in advance” because it will be debated within the framework of the Statute from work.

This new 21st Century Statute is an electoral promise of the coalition government that, as this newspaper reported and as Daz has admitted, will be difficult to fulfill due to scheduling problems. The person in charge of Labor has admitted that she lacks time to address the magnum opus of her mandate but that, with everything, start the work to get it started.
