Javier Llovera Sáez, Francisco Cobo and Miguel Llovera Ciriva request to limit subcontracting in the construction sector
Javier Llovera Sáez, chairman at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and member of the Royal Academy of Doctors (RAD); Francisco Cobo, professor at University Camilo José Cela, and Miguel Llovera Ciriza, professor at Polytechnic University of Catalonia, believe that the law is too lax in subcontracting in an industry such as construction, where training and motivation workers is closely related to essential aspects such as quality and safety. In the paper “Problems of subcontracting in the construction sector”, published by Tribuna Plural, the review of the RAD, in its No. 6, the three experts warn of the risks posed legislation that allows up more than three steps outsourcing and poor monitoring undertaken by temporary employment on the suitability of their workers.
“On the construction sector sets a limit: the third subcontractor may not subcontract workers, which has contracted with other subcontractors or self-employed, but still exceptionally subcontracting may be beyond the third level”, remind scholars. On temporary employment, state that “the reality of work of people from these companies involves contradictions and dysfunctions in the team work hard to overcome”.
