The Congreso de los Diputados finally approved (yesterday) the right to the self-employed (autonomo) to unemployment benefit and sick leave.
This means that autonomos who have been paying into the system get the right to 70% paro, for two months of every year worked, but only if they have been paying into social security and their mutua. (The mutua is the mutual assurance company that covers you if loose a finger whilst working).
It appears that autonomos who are currently working have until the 30th of September to signup for the scheme for this fiscal year. Speak to your asesor for more information. After all, with unemployment skyrocketing in Almería it’s nice to have some protection.
