CAAMANO ROJO, Eduardo. The Notion of Mobbing Recognized by the Chilean Jurisprudence. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2011, n.37, pp. 215-240. ISSN 0718-6851. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512011000200005.
This article proposes an up-to-date view of the conceptualization of mobbing, from the Labor's Law perspective, and intends to establish the core elements that make it up, in order to offer criteria for organizing the jurisdictional response to the violation of fundamental rights due to this type of acts of harassment. The sustained increase in complaints filed by workers due to the violation of rights, such as dignity or physical and psychic integrity, as well as the lack of a legal classification for mobbing, justify the Labor Courts' attempt to uniform and clarify the notion of mobbing, with a view to strengthen the valuable task they have undertaken to protect the worker's fundamental rights in the company.
