The labor reform proposes juicy compensation for laid-off workers: we tell you the details

This July 20, along with the installation of the new legislature, the Congress of the Republic will resume the debates on the Labor Reform, one of the social projects proposed by the government of President Gustavo Petro.

According to the Ministry of Labor, the articles seek to improve the working conditions of working families and give more guarantees to the country’s employees.

That is why one of the sections of the reform talks about the compensation that employees must pay in the event of dismissing their collaborators without just cause.

If approved, the articles indicate that In no case of dismissal will the compensation be less than 45 days of the workers’ salary. However, there are other variables that must be taken into account. Here we tell you.

In the first debate of Commission VII of the House of Representatives, the labor reform was approved. Gloria Inés Ramírez, Minister of Labor, was present in the debate; Jaime Dussan, director of Colpensiones.

This is how compensation for unjustified dismissal would look, according to the labor reform

The changes proposed by the labor reform depend on the type of employment contract. However, the payment cannot be less than 45 days of salary.

One of the most important points to highlight is that If the worker has more than one year of continuous service and less than five years, he will be paid an additional 20 days of salary over the 45 basic days.

If the worker has five or more years of continuous service and less than 10 years, he or she must be paid an additional 30 days of salary over 45 basic days. However, if the worker has 10 or more years of continuous service, he will be paid an additional 60 days of salary over the 45 basic days.

The government project also states that if the employer does not comply with the stipulated compensation, must pay the worker, as compensation, a sum equal to the last daily salary for each day of delay until payment is verified.
