Ana Mendes Godinho (Ana Mendes Godinho) acknowledged the “warning” on the issue of extending the probation period, which she said was to make up for the expiration of the fixed-term contract in her first job.
The Minister of Labor, Unity and Social Security Ana Mendes Godinho (Ana Mendes Godinho) argued on Tuesday that the Constitutional Court’s decision ended the 180-day trial period for those who previously worked regularly for at least 90 days. To clarify “the constitutionality of the various amendments to the “Labor Law”.”
He believes that the unconstitutional statement announced yesterday resulted in “reservation of the probation period for workers who have signed a fixed-term contract of 90 days or more in seeking a first job. Open contract.” The minister told reporters after the meeting. The statement issued stated that the meeting marked the beginning of the internship of 70 new inspectors from the Working Conditions Authority this afternoon.
The lead of the Constitutional Court involved “workers who are looking for their first job, if it applies to workers previously employed by another employer for a period of 90 days or more, it violates the principle of equality”, according to the judgment text cited by the Lusa agency. For the long-term unemployed, the extension of the probation period is not declared unconstitutional.
In response to the court’s ruling, Ana Mendes Godinho recalled that the extension of the probation period “is to eliminate the fact that workers are looking for their first job as a legitimate factor for signing a fixed-term contract. After the fact,” he explained that “the goal of promoting more and more permanent contracts” was explained.
The judgment announced yesterday responds to the continuous inspection request made by representatives of the left-wing group, PCP and PEV. It is not only intended to announce the unconstitutional declaration of extending the probation period of the first job or long-term contract to a maximum of six months-long-term unemployment, but Regarding the use of short-term contracts and collective agreement expiry rules. On these issues, the court did not consider it unconstitutional.
The decision was made known when the government was preparing to make new changes to the labor law within the framework of the “Future Work Green Paper”, and all parties have also proposed a project to change the supervision and rules of remote work regarding the subcontracting of temporary work.
When questioned, the Secretary of Labor did not specify any timetables for the measures proposed in the Green Paper, nor did he specify how they will be linked to the ongoing legislative process in Parliament.
“What we are doing is that within the scope of the global review of the measures in the Green Paper for the Future of Work and the scope of the changes that may need to be implemented, whether it is from investment measures, training measures or changes to legislative measures, all These measures will be evaluated in this place.” Only the Minister of Labor said that the Green Paper on future jobs, which was publicly solicited for comments before June 22, restored the “punishment of excessive resource contracts”.
The minister stated that this Tuesday he discussed the document again with partners of the Standing Committee on Social Dialogue and discussed the “next step” to be taken.
“The goal is to complete the final version of the Green Paper on Future Work in June. Of course, it identifies some intervention needs, whether in active employment policy measures, in measures aimed at training, or in legislation. Change the measures that need to be taken. It is in this sense that we will also prepare the necessary legislative reforms to implement these measures,” he said.
One of the themes of the Green Paper concerns the regulation of the work of digital platforms. The final document that is now being negotiated also mentions the idea of ”more demand for the permits and operations of temporary work companies” and “greater responsibilities for all those involved in the subcontracting chain”, with regard to employment immigration.
On the other hand, it talked about “working with social partners to consider allowing more concentrated working hours in the coming week, or reducing working hours without losing income while increasing productivity”. Part-time parental leave for fathers and mothers and flexible working hours for informal caregivers are also integrated.
