Our Employment Lawyers, specialised in Employment Law, will be able to offer you our professional services in the processing of a procedure for voluntary termination of the employment contract at the request of the employee.

Our employment law firm has handled many cases of termination of contract with highly favourable results and we are highly specialised.

What is the termination of the contract at the employee's request?

When there is a breach by the employer, whether due to a modification of the working conditions, lack of content of the job, effective occupation, mobbing or any other serious breach provided for in article 50 of the Workers' Statute, the employee may request voluntary termination of the employment contract.

The final judgement in these proceedings is constitutive of the termination. It should be borne in mind that, in general, the employment relationship will subsist - and therefore services must continue to be provided and remuneration paid - until a final judgment is obtained.

What compensation will I get?

Compensation when there is a breach by the employer of its obligations entails the termination of the employment contract with the payment of compensation equivalent to unfair dismissal.

What procedure should I follow?

The worker must initially file a conciliation claim with the Mediation, Arbitration and Conciliation Service (SMAC or CMAC).

If an agreement is not reached, a trial must be held in which the termination of the employment contract is requested, the judgement of which can be appealed before the High Court of Justice.

Can the employer retaliate against the employee?

It is very important to know that from the moment legal action is initiated against the company, we will be assisted by the principle of indemnity.

This principle, of a constitutional nature, implies that the company may not adopt retaliatory measures for the mere fact of exercising the legal actions that correspond to the worker.

Infringement of this principle could lead to the measures taken being declared null and void.

What happens if I don't win the lawsuit or my claim is not upheld?

It is important to know that there can be no repercussions against you. The company can do nothing.

Our employment relationship will continue as it was. The employment relationship subsists.

What happens if the situation is unsustainable?

In certain cases, we may request the adoption of precautionary measures requesting exemption from the provision of services or suspension of the employment relationship.

Will I receive unemployment benefits?

The answer is YES. Even if it is a voluntary cause of termination of the contract, as there is a breach of contract by the employer, we will be entitled to unemployment benefits.
