Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This dissertation deals with bullying in the sports contract. This is an issue that has not been analyzed in Portugal, so we pretend to problematize this question and arouse readers' interest in a reality that is so present but "forgotten" in this peculiar context. Thus, for a better treatment of the issue, we began by making a brief historical background to the sporting phenomenon, then we turn to the acceptance of the sports practitioner as a subordinate worker and, consequently, holder of an employment contract. Concerning moral harassment, we began by talking about the same in the common labor context, moving to the context of the contract of sports work, analyzing, with greater rigor, the violation of the duty of effective occupation as a manifestation of moral harassment. It is important to note that it is a theme that is explored by the doctrine, but more in the scope of professional football. However, it is a phenomenon that is a reality in any sports modality, so we pretend to approach it in this perspective, within the scope of the sports work contract.
