Employee Canarias monitors the interests of tourism sector workers

Are you an employee or worker in the tourism sector in Gran Canaria ? Are you dismissed, discriminated or you do not receive your salary ? Employee Canarias monitors your interests regardless of sector and in your language. Join now !

Being an employee in the tourism sector is not always easy, even in Gran Canaria, and sometimes many difficulties could appear on your way. For example, too many working hours by week or by day, the absence of contract, non-respect of holidays or paid holidays, conflicts, problems, and even worse...

In the Canary Islands, there are about 50,000 employees in the tourism sector who do not have a Spanish background and ignore the laws governing working conditions. However, in Spain, like in most European countries, there are rules and collective agreements to follow. In Gran Canaria, employment contracts are, in most cases, handled by a so-called gestoria, or asesoria, which can be translated to payroll management agency. These agencies know the regulations but are in most cases hired to protect the employer's interests, and not yours as an employee.
