Costa del Sol cracks down on abusive work conditions

APPROXIMATELY 1,900 inspections are planned within the hostelry sector on the Costa del Sol this year to track down abusive or illegal work conditions.

One particular thing inspectors will be aiming for this year, as part of the campaign requested by the Ministry of Employment, is to detect and put an end to massive numbers of full-time workers on part-time contracts.

State Public Employment Service (SEPE) figures for last year revealed that 42 per cent of all contracts signed within Malaga Province were part-time, and Comisiones Obreras trade union insists that the figures do not add up, especially as tourism is on the up and more full-time workers must be required.

Last year the inspection department fined almost 500 businesses within the hostelry sector and discovered 550 workers who either had no work contract or were working more hours than they were officially employed for.
