Crisis and labour law recent developments in portuguese labour law

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The present study exposes the main features of the recent changes introduced in Portuguese labour law, following the severe crisis the country went through and the external financial aid it required. It addresses separately the alterations implemented in individual labour law and collective labour law, pinpointing the main developments verified in these areas and the driving forces behind them. Aside from an explanatory perspective (that covers the previous and the currents traits of the labour regime), this article also provides a critical point of view, regarding the consequences of these changes and the reactions they provoked amongst Portuguese society and its social partners.
