In Portugal, the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic and the Labour Code establish the legal base to rule labour relations between workers and employers. For that reason, it is important to note some of rights enjoyed by workers (public and private sector):
Right to equality and non-discrimination of the access to jobs and in the workplace
Right to provide service in safety and health
Right to strike
Right to freely renounce the Labour Contract during the trial period
Right to create, in the company, a workers commission that defends their rights
Right to repair damage arising from accidents at work or occupational diseases
