Controversial Coronavirus Guide Causes Disagreement in Spanish Parliament

HOPING to assist workers and employers to fully understand their rights and obligations now that Coronavirus is spreading, the Spanish Ministry of Labour and Social Security has  published a guide.

It immediately caused confusion amongst employers and argument between PSOE and Podemos coalition partners which has not helped the situation.

Lawyers say that the contents of the document are based on existing laws although and there is nothing really new contained in the document there is a suggestion that workers could decide to stop work due to “serious and imminent” of risk of contagion which has employers up in arms.
