How much will domestic workers receive unemployment in 2023: new amounts

Date: May 31, 2023 Time: 10:35:04

It was in 2022 when the Government of Spain, at the request of the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy, led by Yolanda Díaz, awoke the right to request unemployment benefits for domestic workers after unanimously ratifying in June agreement 189 of the petition of the International Labor Organization (ILO) that forces this group, often vulnerable, and made up of more than 600,000 women, to recognize unemployment. Well, the Public State Employment Service guarantees that the unemployment contribution is mandatory for female workers as of October 1, 2022.

Likewise, the contribution bases for unemployment will be those corresponding to the contingencies of accidents at work and occupational diseases. To all this, we must add that the conditions change when it comes to terminating the cause of the contract, that is, when notifying the dismissal, since dismissal by withdrawal is eliminated. The truth is that until last year, the employment relationship may be terminated without a justifiable cause. Therefore, in accordance with the assumptions of article 49.1 of the Workers’ Statute, it must be notified in writing.

In other words, if the domestic employee has provided her services for more than a year, the employee must comply with a minimum notice of 20 days. In the event that the employment contract is less than twelve months, the notice is reduced to only 7 days. Another point to take into account is that, as a minimum, it must be adjusted to the Minimum Interprofessional Salary (SMI), which is currently 1,000 euros per month divided into 14 payments or 1,166.67 euros in 12. In the case of the remuneration per hour is 7.29 euros per hour. If holidays are included, it goes up to 7.82 euros.

I am a domestic worker, when do I have the right to unemployment?

Like any other worker, domestic workers have the right to unemployment if, when their contract ends, they have contributed to unemployment for at least 360 days. However, in the event that the period is less, they will also be entitled to unemployment benefits, as is the case of the subsidy of 480 euros per month, if they comply with those provided for in them. Likewise, the contributions made in any of the Social Security mechanisms through which unemployment contributions are made will be taken into account.

How much do domestic workers earn in unemployment in 2023?

The unemployment benefit, or unemployment, is revalued by 8.5% by 2023, so that unemployed people will make these new amounts effective as of this same month of January, as detailed on the website of the SEPE. In this way, the minimum amount will be 560 euros for people without children, and 749 for people with dependent children, and the maximum of 1,225 euros for people without children, 1,400 euros for people with one child and 1,575 euros. For people with more than one dependent child. In the event that you are entitled to a subsidy, the amount is estimated at 480 euros.

Without children (80% of the IPREM): 560.00 euros. 1 child or more (107% of the IPREM) 749.00 euros.

Maximum amount of contributory benefit
