Back No. 207/2022 Unión General de Trabajadores (UGT) v. Spain
The complaint was registered on 24 March 2022. It concerns Article 24 (right to protection in cases of termination of employment) of the Revised European Social Charter. UGT alleges that the Spanish legislation on individual dismissals without just cause (Article 56 of Royal Legislative Decree No. 2/2015 of 23 October 2015 approving the revised text of the Workers' Statute Law and Article 110 of Act No. 36/2011 of 10 October 2011 regulating social jurisdiction) and subsequent legislation are in breach of Article 24 of the Charter in that they provide for a legally predetermined system of calculation which does not allow for the legally foreseen or assessed compensation to be modulated to reflect the full damage suffered, nor does it guarantee its dissuasive effect.
The European Committee of Social Rights declared the complaint admissible on 14 September 2022.
