The current 'boom' of discontinuous fixed contracts will be under the microscope of the Labor Inspectorate from next week, which will ensure that their use, which has multiplied by 13 after the implementation of the labor counter-reform, to the detriment of the temporary employment, is the correct one and does not commit any type of fraud. This was announced this Wednesday by the Second Vice President and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, in the control session of Congress.
It was the vice president's counterattack to the accusation made by the PP in the Chamber of making up temporality with a name change. «Neither has it finished with temporality nor with precariousness, it has aggravated them. Her formula for her labor counter-reform consists of a name change. If we changed your name, would you be a better minister? No, it would be the same minister, a conjurer of employment data, because in September or at the latest in October, when the discontinuous landlines go home, they will be unemployed and you will not be counted in the statistics. Is this magic or a scam? ”, reproached the popular deputy Carmen Navarro.
The minister also recalled that companies that fail to comply and commit labor fraud now face fines of up to 10,000 euros for each worker in an irregular situation, a measure that has been introduced in the labor reform.
Sources from the ministry explained to this newspaper that the Inspection campaign that will be launched next week will consist of sending letters to companies, in the style of the one carried out to legalize the situation of domestic workers. . In turn, they pointed out that it will be carried out due to a “duty of vigilance”, just as they did in the pandemic with the ERTE, not because some type of fraud has been detected.
The labor reform has tripled the number of permanent contracts in these months, to the point that in April it represented almost half of the new contracts.
