Labour Law

Pedro Romano Martinez

Year: 2019

Contrary to what would be desirable, labour law has been the subject of frequent legislative measures. It can be said that there is an attraction of the legislator for this field of law, giving the impression that changing the legal system in moments of economic or political crisis will solve the economic and business problems and, therefore, will represent a way of solving labour problems, especially unemployment or business competitiveness. However, the path of legislative proliferation, has not lead to immediate solutions of labour problems, but rather has contributed to the increasing difficulty in understanding and applying labour law, due to legal uncertainty. This manual is intended to point out some guidelines for clarifying doubts about the interpretation of legal rules, especially doubts that may arise from new legal solutions, suggesting possible avenues in the application of the aforesaid legal rules.

Studies on Labour Law (Labour Code),Volume II

Luís Gonçalves da Silva

Year: 2020

Available in e-book

 

The Labour Code has been the subject of constant changes, noting that, since 2009, the labour regulations have undergone fifteen modifications, which has posed several interpretative challenges. Among the altered matters, the norms pertaining to labour sources of law are particularly relevant, in particular with regard to collective agreements.

After the success of volume I, in Volume II the Author brings together a set of texts published in several magazines and collective works, in Portugal and abroad, making it easier for the reader to access them. In these texts, bearing in mind the common thread of collective agreements, the Author analyses matters such as the impact of the economic crisis and the “Troika”, the powers of the labour administration, the personal sphere and the working time, the relevance of the place of work and, finally, the choice of the collective instrument by the worker.

Notes on the Normative Effectiveness of Collective Conventions

N.º 1 of the Collection

Luís Gonçalves da Silva

Year: 2002

 

Following previous publications, the Labour Law Institute of the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon (IDT) is responsible for a new collection: Labour Law Volumes. In order to continue to contribute to the development and dissemination of the science of Labour Law, this collection is especially dedicated to specific studies.

This book, named Notes on the Normative Effectiveness of Collective Conventions, addresses, after a brief historical review, the normative effects of collective conventions, bearing in mind the spatial, personal and temporal effectiveness.

To the text, the Author adds a compilation of diplomas on collective agreements ranging from the moment of their first appearance to the present.

Assignment of Employees and Groups of Companies

N.º 2 of the Collection

João Zenha Martins

Year: 2002

The scientific project of the Labour Law Institute of the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon (IDT), in the path of the study and dissemination of Labour Law, now finds a new expression with the launch of the Labour Law Volumes.

This work, entitled Assignment of Employees and Groups of Companies, is an important step in providing a legal framework regarding workers’ mobility mechanisms that, for various reasons, have been experiencing a sharp increase.

In this context, all the figures that embody such phenomenon are studied, with particular emphasis on the figure of the occasional assignment of employees, whose regime is object of analysis in all its aspects and elements. Thus, in addition to analysing the immense universe that is Portuguese labour law, the regime applicable to company groups is also being studied. The regulatory paradigm of work in an individual company is today insufficient to understand the multiplicity of social demands and the reality of groups of companies, where the need for productivity and competitiveness is projected in an increased way, requires a broader spectrum analysis that also takes into account the provisions of the Commercial Companies Code.

The fundamental challenge in this whole field therefore involves the construction of a global framework that, recognizing the transformations that have taken place and the decisive role of negotiation, can contribute to the sustainability of a labour model in which the duty to adapt to new circumstances and the duty to protect workers are compatible.

Portuguese Labour Code – Código do Trabalho

N.º 3 of the Collection

Ano: 2005

In December 2003, the Labour Code entered info force, consequently reformulating Labour Law and making it important to inform lawmakers and recipients of the respective norms of the legislative solutions adopted. Knowing that Labour Law has become internationalized and that the rules contained in the Labour Code may have foreign recipients, who do not always master Portuguese well, the Labour Law Institute of the Faculty of Law of Lisbon (IDT), in collaboration with the law firm AM Pereira, Sáragga Leal, Oliveira Martins, Júdice, e Associados (PLMJ), has prepared a bilingual edition (Portuguese and English) of the Labour Code. The option for an English translation stems from it being more widely disseminated at the international level, therefore allowing for easier access to the labour regime set forth in the Labour Code, despite the greater difficulty regarding concept equivalence of legal terms.

Legal Regime for Employment Contracts in Public Functions

N.º 4 of the Collection

Maria do Rosário Palma Ramalho

Pedro Madeira de Brito

Year: 2009

 

The reform of the public employment legal regime has been carried out for some years and has just resulted in the approval of several structural legal instruments, which significantly change the regime applicable to workers holding a public service employment contract.

The present compendium of legislation compiles the fundamental legislation on this matter, currently in force, with emphasis, namely, on the new Legal Regime for Employment and Career of Workers who perform Public Functions, on the new Legal Regime for Employment Contract in Public Functions and on the new Disciplinary Regulation.

The New Labour Code versus Previous Legislation

N.º 5 of the Collection

Maria do Rosário Palma Ramalho

Joana Pinto Monteiro

Isabel Vieira Borges

Diogo Pereira Duarte

Year: 2009

The extent and complexity of the changes to labour regimes introduced by the 2009 Labour Code justify a comparative study of the labour regimes contained in the new Labour Code with the corresponding regimes in the 2003 Labour Code and the respective Regulations. Such is the purpose of this comparative work, which can thus be another useful tool to deal with the traditional volatility of labour regimes and its inherent problems, well known to all those who, at the most varied levels, are confronted with these matters.

Studies of the Labour Law Institute – Volume VII

Coordination: Rosário Palma Ramalho

Year: 2015

This volume of Studies of the Labour Law Institute compiles works of students from Scientific Master’s and Doctorate courses in the areas of Legal-Labour and Legal-Business Sciences of the Faculty of Law of Lisbon, which were presented as final reports in the disciplines of Labour Law I and II, of which I am Professor.

With this further publication, the Labour Law Institute fulfils its mission of making known to the community of legal experts and all those interested in labour matters, the serious scientific research that is being carried out in this area, namely in the Faculty of Law of Lisbon.

The studies gathered in this work, under our coordination, were prepared within the general theme of the Labour Law Seminars of the academic years to which they refer – the theme of Collective Labour Situations and the theme of the Reform of the Labour Code of 2009. Although they deal with very different labour issues, they are all concerned with reflecting the most recent legislative changes in the respective topic and their consequences.

The first study, authored by Ana Margarida Henriques, is dedicated to the legal regime of paid annual leave and reflects, in particular, the changes introduced in the Labour Code by L. nº 23/2012, of 25 June regarding this matter. The second study, prepared by André Sousa Marques, revisits the unavoidable but always current theme of disciplinary proceedings for fair cause dismissal, in the light of the most recent legislative changes. The third study, by José João Valadas Henriques, addresses the difficult issue of the temporal scope of collective labour agreements and the their applicability after termination, discussing the successive changes in this matter over the past few years. And the fourth and fifth studies, by Pedro Barrambana Santos and Guilherme Gaspar, respectively, address the theme of the legal nature of collective labour agreements, a classic issue that today, more than ever, is in need of rethinking in the perspective of the relationship between labour sources of law and the principle of collective autonomy.

All studies have been updated by the authors for the purposes of this publication.
