Objective dismissal is a type of dismissal in which the employer terminates the employment contract for economic, technical, organizational, or production reasons. It is a lawful dismissal under Spanish law, provided that the employer follows specific procedures and criteria for justification and documentation. The employer must give the employee written notice of the dismissal and a severance payment of twenty days per year of service, up to a maximum of twelve months' salary.See more information
Disciplinary dismissal is a type of dismissal in which the employer terminates the employment contract for disciplinary reasons. This type of dismissal is legal when the employee commits a severe breach of the employment contract, such as theft, harassment, or serious negligence. However, the employer must provide evidence to prove the employee's misconduct before dismissing them. If the employer fails to justify the dismissal, the employee may be entitled to reinstatement and compensation for damages.See more information
Collective dismissal is a type of dismissal that occurs when the employer terminates the employment of a significant number of employees, usually for economic or production reasons. In Spain, collective dismissals are regulated by a specific legal framework, which requires the employer to negotiate with workers' representatives and the relevant public authorities. The employer must provide a detailed plan for the dismissal and compensation for the affected employees.See more information
Mutual agreement termination is a type of dismissal in which the employer and employee agree to terminate the employment contract voluntarily. This type of dismissal does not require a legal justification, but it must be in writing and signed by both parties. The employer must pay the employee severance compensation, which is usually higher than the compensation for objective dismissal.We can verify that you have received the correct severance pay
