Below there is a brief overview of the Labor Law in the Argentine Republic.

An employment relationship exists when a person voluntarily and personally performs tasks for another individual or company. The employee shall receive remuneration in exchange.

According to the Labor Contract Law, if the above conditions are met, even if the parties -worker and employer- do not enter into a written employment contract, there will be an employment relationship. This automatically generates for both parties all the rights and obligations inherent thereto.

The Labor and Social Security systems are regulated by the following laws, among others:

Labor Contract Act 20.744, as amended;

Employment Law Act 24.013;

Labor Risks Act 24.557.

On the other hand, there are Collective Bargaining Agreements. They establish salary agreements and labor conditions for a specific productive sector.
