Alfredo Aspra analyses the dismissals for justified intermittent absences from work in an article published today in the El Economista newspaper

The companies have started a trickle of dismissals due to intermittent absences justified to work, many of them due to non-serious illnesses, exceeding the thresholds established in article 52.d of the Workers Statute. The reason has been the support that this form of objective dismissal has obtained with the ruling of the Constitutional Court of 16 October 2019.

Alfredo Aspra, Partner in the employment area of Andersen Tax & Legal, states that the dismissal due to absences from work is not new, and explains that the cause of contractual extinction has been contemplated in the Workers Statute since its first version in 1980 and that since then it has undergone changes, but the cause itself has been incorporated in the legal system for a long time.
