AGUILAR CAVALLO, Gonzalo  and  CONTRERAS ROJAS, Cristian. El Efecto Horizontal de los Derechos Humanos y su Reconocimiento Expreso en las Relaciones Laborales en Chile. Ius et Praxis [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.1, pp.205-243. ISSN 0718-0012.

Human Rights are by nature evolving and expansive. The dynamic of human rights generates several different interactions between international legal systems and domestic legal systems and at the same time, brings not only the connections between the state and the individual but also within the individuals themselves. The latter point is a theory referred to as "the horizontal effect of human rights". This theory has been specifically introduced to our national legal system through the context of labor law and worker's rights, as a way of limiting or prohibiting any sort of human rights violations be it civil, political or social rights. This paper examines the suitability of the way in which the horizontal effect doctrine has been incorporated into domestic law and its foreseeable consequences

Keywords : Human Rights; horizontal effect; labor relations; human rights' protect procedure.
