8) In the labor proceedings, can I submit a lawsuit directly?

No, you must first go to an administrative conciliation body to try to reach an agreement. Nevertheless, you must take into account the time-limits since the time-limits in Labour Law are short, and occasionally you should lodge the complaint in court before the conciliation to avoid the expiry of the deadline.

The Spanish lawyers know that it is essential to control the time-limits in Labour Law to prevent the loss of the case through the prescription period. In big cities like Madrid and Barcelona, conciliations can occasionally increase the workload of the Administration. Our lawyers working in Madrid and Barcelona know that they have to control the time-limits and sometimes lodge a complaint before the conciliation.

The compensations for employment dismissals vary according to the type of termination, the number of years of employment, or the wages involved. Our lawyers will indicate which compensation corresponds to each case.
