Service Details

Employment Law: Dismissals & Disputes

This service is available across Spain

Who Can Benefit from this Service?

  • This service is for individuals in Spain who are unsure how Spanish employment law impacts their employment rights or indeed who have been dismissed from their employment and wish to seek legal advice and possibly contest their dismissal. 
  • Clients typically face issues such as unfair or unlawful termination, lack of proper severance pay, or dismissal without proper grounds or procedure. 
  • This service is crucial for those who believe their dismissal was unjustified, lacked proper notice, or was discriminatory, helping them navigate through the complex legal framework of employment law in Spain to assert their rights and seek rightful compensation or reinstatement after getting fired in Spain.
Who Can Benefit from this Service?


  • There are no specific eligibility requirements or nationality restrictions inherent for individuals seeking this service. 
  • However, clients must act promptly as the deadline to appeal against a dismissal in Spain is strict, being 20 working days from the notification of the dismissal. 
  • It is helpful if you can provide all relevant documentation related to their employment and dismissal, including employment contracts, dismissal letters, and any correspondence with the employer.


  • The legal process begins with the filing of a conciliation act claim within 20 working days from the dismissal notification. 
  • If no agreement is reached during conciliation, a lawsuit can be filed in the Social Court. 
  • The lawyer will guide the client through each step, ensuring proper documentation is filed, representing the client during conciliation and court proceedings, and negotiating on their behalf. 
  • The lawyer will also assess the validity and fairness of the dismissal, advising on the possibilities of success and potential compensation or reinstatement.
