Labor Laws in Spain
During your executive search in Spain for either executives or an interim management team, it is important to gain a clear understanding of Spain’s labor laws. Here are some Spanish labor law points to consider. Employment contracts are allowed to be either verbal or written. More often, Spain only offers employment contracts in writing; it is very rare to receive a verbal contract in Spain. Employment contracts in Spain are registered at the employment offices, where a copy of the contract is kept on file. A probationary period may be required, although it is not compulsory. If required, it must be stated in writing and the maximum duration of the probationary period is six months for qualified technicians and two months for other workers.
In Spain, the maximum workweek is forty hours. In one working day, an adult employee in Spain is not allowed to work over nine hours, while for an employee under the age of eighteen, the workday is no longer than eight hours. Overtime is allowed in some circumstances, but an employee cannot work more than eighty hours of overtime per year.
Business Culture in Spain
A younger generation of management has surfaced since in the post-Franco years. This new generation of Spanish executives brought different approaches to Spanish business. Naturally, this new style of management brought some tension to organizations that continue to implement traditional Spanish work styles. Many see this as a generational economic issue, and part of a progressive movement towards a modern economy.
