CALL FOR PAPERS Nº 48.
DISCONTINUOUS PERMANENT, TEMPORARY AND TRAINING CONTRACTS: REFORMS AND FIRST ASSESSMENTS
The labour reform, agreed through the social dialogue and approved by Royal Decree-Law 32/2021, of 28 December establishes the permanent contract as the main form of contracting in the Spanish labour market. The aim of enacted labour reform is to reduce the temporary nature and job insecurity of temporary workers, to limit temporary contracts to very specific causes, among others. In this way, the specific contract for work and services has disappeared in the current amendment and two types of temporary contracts have been introduced: on the one hand, temporary contract due to production circumstances; on the other hand, temporary worker replacement contract. Despite the fact that the entry into force of this labour reform was postponed until 1st of April, nowadays, the official statistics have begun to show an important change related to some reform previsions in this respect.
Other of the reforms included in Royal Decree-Law 32/2021 is the referred one to the training contract, with the aim to update and modernize training contracts. Thus, the redesign of training contracts is intended to combat the exploitation of trainees, as well to have an impact on the hiring of permanent staff.
Finally, it is worth highlighting the imminent new Spanish Employment Law recently approved by the Council of Ministers, which aims to transform employment policies through training, guidance and support for the unemployed.
With this issue, therefore, we intend to invite the authors to reflect on the current reforms in labour law. To this extend, the articles presented will be useful to reflect on these issues from different points of view such as law, sociology and economics.
