Spain Supreme Court finds workers entitled to Christmas hamper

The Supreme Court of Spain found Monday that workers are entitled to a Christmas hamper as a condition of their employment.

The case arose from a labor dispute at Fujitsu Technology Spain, in which the company eliminated gifting the Christmas hamper from the budget back in 2013. A Christmas hamper is a packaged assortment of wine, cheese, oils, and meats. It is often gifted to employees in Spain.

The court reasoned that employees gained the right to the Christmas hamper from longstanding tradition. Because Fujitsu Technology Spain had provided the Christmas hamper to employees for many decades, it became an expectation within the employment contract. In essence, the court stated that employees acquired the right to the item.

The decision does not require employers to always provide a Christmas hamper to employees. The order merely prevents companies from permanently eliminating the benefit.
