Abstract

En la última década la orientación de las políticas microeconómicas dio un giro extraordinario en América Latina, pero la legislación laboral prácticamente no cambió. El propósito central de este trabajo es mostrar la magnitud de este atraso y señalar que en la mayoría de países se requieren profundas reformas laborales para adecuar la legislación laboral al nuevo contexto de flexibilidad y competencia.
