Compensation limits for dismissal of pre-2012 workers are raised by Supreme court ruling

In a ruling in September 29, 2014, the Spanish Supreme court changed the rules for compensating dismissed workers. The government had passed a law that limited compensation to 720 days, and “froze” any accumulation above this limit for workers that had already accumulated this number of days (45 days per year worked pre-2012, 33 days after).

The court basically “reinterpreted” the law (without really giving any good reason), and pre-February 2012 workers would continue to accumulate compensation until the 1260 day limit (42 months).

For me, this means that I can work another twelve years here before I reach my maximum 1260 limit.
