  • Regularly work in a business or company a member of his own family, for 15 or more hours, even if not paid wages or salary (family worker.)
  • They have paid a fixed occupation, but not exercised any day of the period referenced by a temporary situation due to illness or accident, for labor disputes, for temporary interruption of work or because of bad weather or damage to the machinery, to be in use on vacation, permit or license.
  • Worked during the reference week, but worked for fixed periods.
