Dismissal due to sudden disability to be prohibited



The second vice president of the Government, Minister of Labour and general coordinator of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, announced that today she will bring to the Council of Ministers the prohibition of automatic dismissal as the first option due to sudden disability.

“On Tuesday we will bring to the Council of Ministers for the first time the reform of the dismissal of people with disabilities in Spain,” she advanced, without going into more details and going on to boast, as on other occasions, that his labour reform has been the first in 42 years that has “won rights for working people.”

When the reform of article 49 of the Constitution was approved to replace the term ‘disabled’ with ‘people with disabilities’ and to reinforce the protection of the rights of this part of the citizenry, Díaz announced that a reform of the Workers Statute would be carried out to prevent dismissal from being the norm when there is a disability situation that occurs in a worker and prioritising job adaptations or transition to other functions if the employee so wishes.

This was an old demand from the Spanish Committee of People with Disabilities (Cermi), which already valued the initiative positively when the Minister of Labour announced it last March, the proposal was subjected to a public hearing process to gather input.
