The first quarter of 2023 has been characterized by novelties of great significance for the management of labor relations, which imply new obligations for companies. Specifically, the transposition of the Whistleblowing Directive through the Whistleblower Protection Act establishes the obligation to implement an internal information system and the integration of all existing information channels. On the other hand, the Trans and LGTBI Rights Act extends the obligations of companies in this regard and has important repercussions on the regulation of labor relations. For its part, the Sexual Health Law extends the cases of temporary incapacity referring to women.
Also noteworthy are the new developments that will take place in the following months, such as the extension of conciliation rights in the draft bill on families, or the balanced presence of women and men in decision-making bodies. Finally, the judicial pronouncements applying the Equal Treatment Law in relation to terminations in temporary disability situations are of interest.
