CARELLI, Rodrigo de Lacerda. Labor Public Attorneys on protection of Labor rights. Cad. CRH [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.spe1, pp. 59-69. ISSN 0103-4979. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-49792011000400005.
The Labor Public Attorneys, an institution that was before subordinate in the labor protective system, with the overhaul of the "parquet", from the 1980s, gained importance in the functional representation of workers, and the protection of fundamental rights at work. Thus, the text shows that, in time of crisis in Labour Law and its institutions, the Labor Public Attorneys enclose the role of society defender and acts in the protection of Labor Law, reinforcing it with the human rights argument. At the end, both the institution and the branch of law it strives to protect are strengthened.
