A complaint was registered by Unión General de Trabajadores (UGT) on 24 March 2022 concerning Article 24 (right to protection in cases of termination of employment) of the Revised European Social Charter (RESC). The complaint was declared admissible on 14 September 2022.

UGT alleges that the Spanish legislation on individual dismissals without just cause and subsequent legislation are in breach of Article 24 of the Charter in that they provide for a legally predetermined system of calculation which does not allow for the legally foreseen or assessed compensation to be modulated to reflect the full damage suffered, nor does it guarantee its dissuasive effect.

The full text of the complaint can be found here and attached below.
