I would like to hire staff in my Spanish company – what do I need to take into account?
If you have set up a company in Spain and are going to hire staff, you should be aware that Spanish labour law is quite different from Dutch labour law. There are, for example, important differences in the types of employment contracts, the probationary period, the competition clause, wage remuneration, sickness regulations and the notice period.
In addition to the Spanish labour law, a collective agreement is almost always applied, which deviates from the law on some points.
Taking into account the Spanish system, we can draw up an employment contract for you in accordance with Spanish law and taking into consideration the working conditions that apply in the Netherlands. In this way, working conditions can be harmonised to a certain extent.
We can also take care of payroll administration in Spain.
It is important that you are always well advised and assisted by Dutch-speaking lawyers specialised in Spanish labour law.
