WHAT DOES SPANISH PRACTICES MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Spanish practices

The terms Spanish Practices or old Spanish customs are United Kingdom expressions that refer to irregular or restrictive practices in workers' interests. Typically, these are arrangements that have been negotiated in the past between employers and unions. The issue arises because, in United Kingdom law, a contract of employment consists of both expressed and implied terms. Implied terms can arise through "custom and practice". Historically, alteration of these terms has been by negotiation and collective bargaining. For example, if it has been the habit to release staff when the day's work is done, then that becomes the de facto contract of employment. If some workers are required to stay on to do additional tasks, then it may be more convenient to pay these workers to do so. Over many years of incremental negotiation, the original rationale may be lost and a point reached where all workers are being paid a supplement merely to complete a normal shift. With the benefit of hindsight, such an arrangement might be described as a "Spanish practice".
