Since Yolanda Díaz held the Labor portfolio, her legislative reforms and her public policies have been aimed at encouraging permanent contracts, reducing temporary employment and precariousness. For this reason, in the same line of the labor reform, the second vice president has brought to the Council of Ministers this Tuesday a restructuring of aid for hiring. Likewise, with the new norm, Work seeks to improve the employability of those groups that have enormous difficulties: victims of gender violence, people with disabilities, unemployed people over 45 years of age or young people, among others. The new standard will start working in September.
Thus, with Royal Decree Law 1/2023, incentives were introduced for permanent contracts at the same time that the aid that currently exists for temporary employment will be cut. The objective is that public aid is exclusively used for stable employment. Until now, Work had designed a series of bonuses that rewarded the conversion of temporary into permanent. The problem, as they referred to the workers themselves, is that many were fired after making them permanent (and, consequently, after receiving the money from the company).
They will only be maintained for a single case, which is the transformation of temporary contracts in agriculture into ordinary discontinuous permanent ones, whose contribution will be subsidized for three years with 55 euros per month, a figure that in the case of women will be 73 euros. For the rest, with the new bonuses, whoever receives the incentive will have the obligation to maintain employment for 3 years. After being implemented, the Government will take care of evaluating each of these new measures. In this way, the ones that work will be kept and the ones that will not have the expected effects will be withdrawn. The contract modalities that will be able to appreciate these new SEPE aids are the following:
✅ Recruitment incentives must have a clear premise: create decent work through indefinite and full-time hiring.
