The flexibility of the procedures for both suspension of contracts and reduction of working hours, motivated by force majeure or objective causes, established in Royal Decree-Law 8/2020, of the 17th of March, is subject to the company's commitment to maintain employment for a period of six months from the date of resumption of activity.
The sixth additional provision of the aforementioned rule establishes that each employer who has been granted an ERTE of those of the COVID19 is obliged not to terminate labour relations during the six months following the end of the suspension or reduction.
Royal Decree-Law 11/2020, of the 31th of March, has qualified it by saying, in its fourteenth additional provision, that in the case of temporary contracts, this imposed commitment will not be considered breached when the contract expires due to the expiration of the agreed time. or the performance of the work or service that constitutes its object or when the activity that is the object of the contract cannot be carried out immediately.
This unnecessary nuance would be lacking more, it is done, in my opinion, to give one more joy to the already happy world of entertainment.
This additional provision says that the commitment of six months without terminating employment contracts, will be valued in attention to the specific characteristics of the different sectors and the applicable labour regulations, making a specific exception for companies in the performing arts, music, film and audio-visuals.
I imagine that those who fill the stalls at the next Goya Awards gala will be filled with joy and satisfaction, as well as grateful and excited.
Whatever. Mum, I want to be an artist.
