    Institutional Economy and Contract´s Theory are the framework of this document. For them, uncertancy is a basic and essencial concept on transaction costs. In order to minimize uncertancy´s incidence, individuals prefer to rule their future relationships under contracts. Economic Theory has provided some possible ways to explain the way that individuals with different sets of information and attitudes towards risk, have developed efficient mechanism that allows them to cumplir their contracts without terceros´s intervention. The models exposed have been presented as a usefull tool in order to formalize particular labour market´s desequibria, and this document presents their main features. ********************************************************************* Este documento se enmarca dentro de la economía institucional y la teoría de los contratos. Para dichas corrientes la incertidumbre constituye un elemento esencial dentro de los costos de transacción. Para minimizar la incidencia de dichos costos, los agentes prefieren enmarcar sus relaciones futuras en un contrato. La teoría económica ha especificado ciertos modelos que explican la forma en que individuos, con diferentes conjuntos de información y con diferentes actitudes ante el riesgo, pueden llegar a establecer mecanismos eficientes para hacer cumplir los contratos sin necesidad de acudir a terceros. Dichos modelos han sido utilizados para evidenciar el fenómeno de los salarios rígidos, como una propuesta inicial de cara a formalizar algunos desequilibrios que pueden presentarse en el mercado de trabajo, y que van más allá de la premisa de analizar el desempleo como el tipo de desequilibrio más frecuente. Este documento presenta una revisión de los fundamentos y características de dichos modelos.
