Special System for Domestic Employees
From 1 January 2012, the head of the household for whom the worker carries out domestic tasks must register as an employer with Social Security and give the person working for them active contributor status, regardless of the number of hours, and declaring, among other things, the monthly amount paid to this person.
The contributions shall be according to the remuneration. For all cases the person responsible for paying in the contributions of both employer and worker shall always be the employer.
The payment must be made by Direct Debit or account charging.
The protective action provided by this System, within the General Scheme to which it belongs, does not include that corresponding to unemployment.
