The Confederación Sindical de Comisiones Obreras (CCOO) has lodged a complaint against Spain, alleging the violation of articles 24 b. (right to protection in cases of termination of employment). The case has been declared admissible. 

The CCOO trade union confederation alleges that the situation in Spain constitutes a violation of Article 24 of the Charter both on the issue of the adequate compensation in case of unfair dismissal and on the issue of the right to reinstatement, in the absence of compensation for the damage effectively sustained.
