Following the adoption of resolution 464 of the Directing Council of IESS, which creates the obligatory membership for people with no working dependency relationship, the reactions of doubt, rejection and interest, are frequent among professionals and freelance workers.
In this context, self-employed workers must contribute the 20.60% of their salary in order to access the benefits of IESS.
For Jose Alomia, president of the Bar Association of Pichincha, the manner in which the IESS makes a constitutional reform with a resolution, has the guild it represents “surprised and alarmed”.
Alomia submits that Article 368 of the Constitution guarantees the sustainability and efficiency of the system, but he believes it will be difficult to calculate a monthly income, because some months has incomes and others not.
About the subject, the President of the Federation of Taxi Drivers of Ecuador, Jorge Calderon, said that taxi drivers do not have any protection, so it would be good to have those benefits.
