Special Information Briefing COVID-19 (No. 26): Royal Decree-law 24/2020 of 26 June on social measures to stimulate employment and protect self-employed individuals and the competitiveness of the industrial sector

29/06/2020

In this Special Information Briefing, we analyse the main measures introduced by Royal Decree-law 24/2020.

On 27 June 2020, the Royal Decree-law 24/2020 of 26 June on social measures to stimulate employment and protect self-employed individuals and the competitiveness of the industrial sector (“RD-l 24/2020“) was published in the Official State Bulletin and came into force.

RD-l 24/2020 incorporates employment and social security measures that expand upon and augment those already adopted by means of the previously approved Royal Decree-laws, such as Royal Decree-law 8/2020 of 17 March on extraordinary urgent measures to deal with the economic and social impact of COVID-19 (“RD-l 8/2020“) and Royal Decree-law 18/2020 of 12 May on social measures in defence of employment (“RD-l 18/2020“), especially with regard to the Temporary Employment Regulation Schemes (“ERTEs“) and the conditions attached thereto.

Specifically, RD-l 24/2020 establishes the following measures:

  1. Special provisions applicable to force majeure based-ERTEs regulated in RD-l 8/2020

An extension has been established for the force majeure based-ERTEs that were already in place before the publication of RD-l 24/2020, which will continue until 30 September 2020 at the latest. Thus, as of Saturday, 27 June 2020, no ERTEs of this nature may be submitted if they have not been submitted previously, with the exception of those included in Section 2 below.
