Suffering unemployment for hotel employees

Adamos Adamou

Arrangements for dealing with the problems that arise in hotel employees due to the pandemic, which last year effectively shut down the tourism industry, were decided at yesterday's meeting of the Minister of Labor with the social partners, which took place at the offices of the CoE.

According to information from “F”, these regulations stipulate that the unemployment benefit, which will be paid to the permanent staff of the hotel units that will be suspended this winter, will not be calculated on the basis of the income they had in 2020, which the industry was underperforming, but exceptionally on the basis of the incomes they had in 2019, if these were higher.

It is noted that the total benefits of the Social Security Services are calculated based on the contributions of the previous year. In the case of hotel employees for the payment of unemployment benefits, in view of the suspension of work for the winter period, the contributions and income of 2020 would be calculated, a year when the majority of hotel employees did not work and were supported by special plans of the Ministry of Labor.

Therefore, it was decided yesterday that the calculation of the allowance should take into account the higher income of employees between 2019 and 2020.

The problem that arises and which, as everything shows, is going to be solved, was recently highlighted by the hotel staff union of PEO, SYXKA PEO, the chairman of the Labor Committee of the Parliament Andreas Kafkalias with a relevant letter sent to the Minister of Labor, while this was just discussed last Friday and in a meeting that the president of DISY Averof Neophytou had with the Minister of Labor Zeta Aimilianidou.
