“The Government today submitted the names of Domingos Jorge Ferreira Lopes and Paulo José Gomes Langrouva to the hearing of the social partners sitting on the Permanent Commission for Social Dialogue, to respectively assume the positions of President and Member of the Board of Directors of the IEFP [Instituto do Emprego e da Formação Profissional]”, said an official source from the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security. This step takes place after, as the same official source said in response to the Lusathe Government has concluded “the interviews and evaluation of candidates for the positions of President and Member of the IEFP, proposed for appointment by the Recruitment and Selection Commission for Public Administration (CReSAP)”.

The tender procedure for the IEFP was published on March 31, 2022, with the deadline for the submission of applications by interested parties closed on April 14.

In May, the Business Journal reported that the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security appointed in replacement Adelaide Franco and Paulo Langrouva as president and member of the IEFP, respectively. On the occasion, the Ministry led by Ana Mendes Godinho told Lusa that these replacement appointments were made taking into account “the profiles and curricula” of Adelaide Franco and Paulo Langrouva.

In August, and according to Negócios advanced in its edition of the 19th, Adelaide Franco resigned from the position of president of the IEFP following legal doubts raised by having accumulated unemployment benefit with “one-off” and “unpaid” activities carried out for the company from which he was fired.

Citing an official source from the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, the Business wrote that “interviews are already scheduled with the candidates nominated by the Public Administration Recruitment and Selection Commission”.

At issue is the unemployment benefit that Adelaide Franco received between March 2020 and October 2021, a period during which she performed occasional activities for Mindsetplus, a company that had fired her in 2019, of which she is a partner, and which will have her daughter as a partner. manager.

The case, which raised several criticisms from political parties and social partners, was disclosed in July by Negócios, which at the time wrote that the “path of the IEFP president raises legal doubts”, because, “contrary to what the dispatch of appointment, Adelaide Franco received unemployment benefits when she was laid off from the company she founded” – Mindsetplus – “and which rehired her”.

According to the newspaper, Adelaide Franco claimed that the activities she had, however, in this company were “one-off” and “unpaid”, but even so, “looking at the legislation in the abstract, lawyers conclude that there can be no activity with the company that gave rise to the subsidy, even if not remunerated”.

Also in July, two months after being appointed to the presidency of the IEFP on a replacement basis, Adelaide Franco asked the Social Security Institute for clarification. At the time, it was ready to return the amounts of unemployment benefit if they were considered undue.
