The Collegi Oficial de Gestors Administratius de Catalunya has detected a “technical error” in the system of request for temporary employment regulation records (erte) designed by the Government which they claim can leave workers unemployed.
As reported in a statement this Monday, the request where a reference number is assigned in each Erte necessary to process the unemployment of employees just look at four digits, so that only the first 9,999 companies may request it.
In this situation, they ask the Government to extend this reference to more digits, as Only in Catalonia there are already more than 65,000 companies that have submitted an erte and that now they have to process the unemployment benefit of their employees.
Data limit, April 3
The Collegi has already warned that companies only count until April 3 to make the request for unemployment benefits for their workers, a term considered “insufficient so that companies can correctly present all the data of their workers entitled to the benefit “.
They emphasize that, if they also cannot do it because a technical problem prevents it, “there is still more risk that many workers may not start collecting their unemployment benefit on May 10”
