But 24 months is still a pretty generous cap - you need to work with the same company for 25 years before you reach it.It's now 20 days if the firm has made a loss in the last three quarterly periods, and capped at 24 months (down from 42).
I think Spain has more unemployment benefit provided by the state than the UK, although the UK provides other benefits as well, whereas in Spain the paro is pretty much all there is.It's meaningless to compare Spain with the UK because Spain doesn't have the same unemployment benefits provided by the State.
Yes it's dificult to compare countries, but wasn't there a thread recently about the benefits of looking to other countries to see how they do things?
I can only compare what I know, based on my experience, and based on my experience redundancy payments for indefinido contracts is still too high - in the skilled private sector you need to have a flow of skills and ideas between companies, so the sector as a whole improves. You shouldn't have people spending their entire working life behind the same desk doing the same "job", even after that job has become obsolete - it's not good for them or their employer - but that's what I see happening in Spain.
