Puigverd Assessors analyzes the main current mandatory regulations for business

Main current mandatory regulations for business


All companies should always be aware of current legislative changes in order to apply them within current regulations.

Right now there are four important regulatory aspects that companies have to be aware of, such as protocols against harassment at work, evaluation and prevention of psychosocial risks, remuneration registration and data protection .

The Puigverd Assessors team focuses on these 4 regulatory elements to try to explain how to proceed in their application correctly, as specified by current legislation.

Protocol for the prevention and action against sexual harassment and harassment based on sex in the company

Harassment at work is a recurring problem in the corporate sphere, for this reason, currently all companies, regardless of the number of workers on their staff, are required to have a protocol against workplace harassment available to their employees. that describes the behaviors, the action and activation procedure, as well as the instructors within the organization to whom to contact and the channel to convey the complaints.

In the same sense, companies must provide all their employees with adequate training in this matter. In addition, companies with more than 50 employees must include this protocol with a specific complaints channel in the Equality Plan.

Failure to implement the equality plan (for companies with more than 50 employees) and/or the anti-harassment protocol may entail an administrative economic penalty, in addition to corporate compensation liability if damage to the employee is found in terms of bullying or equality.

Assessment and prevention of psychosocial risks

It must be remembered that psychosocial factors and risks have been largely forgotten, unknown and very little taken into account in the world of Occupational Risk Prevention. For this reason, it should be noted that they are one of the risks and factors that appear and can occur in all types of companies, departments and jobs, as well as having a completely transversal nature.

The concept of psychosocial factors refers to those conditions that are present in a work situation and that are directly related to the organization, content and performance of the task. These conditions can affect both the well-being or physical, mental or social health of the worker as well as in the development of work.

For these reasons, all companies, within their Occupational Risk Prevention plan , must have, in an express and differentiated manner, a section that allows the psychosocial diagnosis of a company or partial areas of it, in order to be able to establish actions of improvement appropriate to the risks detected and the environment in which they must be carried out.

remuneration record

It is clear that there are many pay inequalities between men and women at the business level. For this reason, managing to promote gender equality in the company is one of the great concerns of businessmen and the government.

Both of them want to find solutions to avoid the differences that currently exist. One of the measures promoted by the government is the compulsory Compensation Registry for all companies in Spain, regardless of their size and activity.

The remuneration registry is a measure of transparency by which companies are obliged to carry out a registry of the average salaries, salary supplements, and extra-salary payments of the workforce, differentiated by gender.

All companies in accordance with article 28.2 of the Workers' Statute , regardless of their size, are obliged to prepare a remuneration record, with an assessment of the jobs to justify the differences (if any), of all their staff, including managers and senior managers.

Data Protection

The General Data Protection Regulation applies to all those companies, organizations, professionals, institutions, or public entities that process the personal data of third parties. All of them must have a manual for the treatment of all this data (information, collection, storage, files, destruction, confidentiality, conservation, assignment, right of withdrawal, especially sensitive data, person in charge, etc.).
The Puigverd Assessors team explains that " these regulations must be complied with and companies must ensure that they comply with them to avoid claims and sanctions" .
