In this topic we will define what the labour market is and we will look at the current labour market situation in general terms.
We will see the types of contracts existing in the Spanish labour market and the labour rights of workers.
The labour market is responsible for establishing a legal framework that effectively manages labour relations and facilitates job creation, employment stability and the promotion of entrepreneurship.
The Spanish labour market currently has more than 20.4 million employed people, with an unemployment rate of 12.45%, or slightly more than 2.9 million unemployed.
Unemployment affects women (14.15%) and young people (28.52%) to a greater extent.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the context of the energy crisis generate uncertainty about the development of the labour market.
In accordance with the provisions of Article 11.3 of the Workers’ Statute, the purpose of the contract shall be to obtain the professional practice appropriate to the level of studies or training that is the object of the contract, through the acquisition of the skills and abilities necessary for the development of the work activity corresponding to the qualification obtained by the worker beforehand.
