: alguns problemas de aplicação

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The present dissertation will pore over parental leave, more specifically, around its legal configuration in the Portuguese legal system, which will be analysed in juxtaposition with European Union law. Borne of the poor legislative and doctrinal development about the leave in appreciation, many are the problems raised around its (accurate) application. Thus, we will seek, in the course of the present work, after having analysed its origin and evolution, explain the legal regime, in order to equate and understand those potential problems, which, can, inclusive, show Portugal’s lack of conformity with European guidelines to which it is attached in this matter.
