Many of the businesses in Tossa are having problems getting staff and the Tossa TV is full of vacancies for Hotel & Bar staff. Our friend who owns Can Pasat has given up running the bar/restaurant as the Nat.Ins. tax has been a big problem. If you employ a person for only 1 day in a month your are liable for a full months National Insurance (equiv.)for the WHOLE month.She had 3 staff last year working for less than a week and then being ill or injured (one fell off a bike , another tripped and sprained her ankle) and had to pay their wages and tax for a full month!
Also many hotel staff are now looking for 12 months work and moving to the Canaries . Locals can work for the 7 month season and then work as gardeners or painters in the winter but the resort depends on outsiders for the summer and business is suffering.

Hola John,

Hope you and Anne had a fab holiday in Roquetas. Sorry, can't help you much with the info you seek as much has changed in Spain since I was resident there. Suggest you contact your nearest Spanish Consul or Labour office[there is one in Manchester, perhaps there is one in Glasgow or Edinburgh]. Looking forward to seeing you in September.

Hola Sandra,
Is moving to Spain as a worker,a bit of a minefield with regard to the legal requirements neccesary between employer and employee? Can a person who is new to working there be exploited,or are there guidelines which must be adhered to by both parties so as to provide an equality to both?

I think these problems have been building up over a period of years;as the world becomes smaller, some travellers prefer not to go to the same place twice; not good news for those trying to run a business and coping with employment regulations as well.
