The labor law of Argentina, its history and current trends are scarely examined by Russian scientists. The author aims to provide a general overview of the history of Argentine labor law, to highlight the historical stages of its development, to identify the essential features inherent in Argentine labor law at every stage, as well as to identify its current state. The article analyzes the first draft of the Argentine Labor Code of 1904 on the continent and the most im-portant laws regulating labor relations including the Law on the Employment Contract of 1974. The author concludes that Argentine labor law has a system of protection of labor rights of a fairly high level. At the same time, the instability of the political and economic situation in the country does not allow implement-ing the achievements of labor legislation and ensuring the implementation of la-bor rights proclaimed by the Constitution of Argentina.
