Caselaw

Comité Panameño por los Derechos Humanos denounced the State of Panama before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) for having arbitrarily laid off 270 public officials and union leaders who had taken part in several rallies against the administration's policies and to defend their labor rights. The lay-offs had followed an accusation made by the Government against the same individuals based on their participation in the demonstrations and on their alleged collaboration with a military uprising.

En 1994, se aprobó la Agriculture Labour Relations Act (ALRA, Ley de Relaciones Laborales del Sector de la Agricultura) para incluir a los trabajadores del sector en el régimen de relaciones laborales de la provincia de Ontario. Un año después, el flamante gobierno conservador anuló la ALRA.

Gran cantidad de residentes de basties (asentamientos informales) de la ciudad de Dhaka fueron desalojados sin aviso previo y sus viviendas fueron demolidas con topadoras. Dos residentes y tres ciudadanos presentaron un reclamo cuestionando las demoliciones en nombre del interés público. La Corte Suprema sostuvo que los habitantes tenían ciertos derechos a una vivienda y a una audiencia justa, y emitió recomendaciones para su reasentamiento.

Provea presentó una acción jurídica a fin de que el Tribunal Supremo de Justicia (TSJ) se pronunciara sobre la inconstitucionalidad de la omisión en que incurrió la Asamblea Nacional (AN), al no establecer un régimen transitorio que regulara el Régimen Prestacional de Empleo cuando promulgó la Ley Orgánica de Sistema de Seguridad Social. Esta omisión implicaba negar el otorgamiento de la prestación de ayuda a los trabajadores que quedaren cesantes o en situación de desempleo.

In 1994 the Agriculture Labour Relations Act (ALRA) was passed to include agricultural workers in the Province of Ontario's labour relations regime.  One year later a newly elected Conservative government repealed the ALRA.  The Appellants challenged both the repeal of the ALRA and the exclusion of agricultural workers from the Labour Relations Act (LRA) as an infringement of the rights of agricultural workers to associate under section 2(d) of the Canadian Charter.  They also alleged discrimination against a vulnerable class of workers, in violation of the right to equali

In 1981, the State of Maharashta and the Bombay Municipal Council decided to evict all pavement and slum dwellers from the city of Bombay. The residents claimed such action would violate the right to life, since a home in the city allowed them to attain a livelihood and demanded that adequate resettlement be provided if the evictions proceeded. The Court declined to provide the remedies requested by the applicants but found that the right to a hearing had been violated at the time of the planned eviction.

The International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) alleged that a large number of children in Portugal (estimated at 200,000 children) worked in poor conditions that affected their health. The ICJ claimed that Portugal was violating article 7(1) of the European Social Charter (ESC) by failing to properly supervise child labour. The government disputed the ICJ's statistics, claiming a maximum of 27,000 children worked and only 2,500 children were paid workers and employed in contravention of the Charter.

A large number of residents of basties (informal settlements) of Dhaka City were evicted without notice and their homes were demolished with bulldozers. A case, challenging the ongoing evictions, was brought by two residents and three citizens in the public interest. The Supreme Court held that inhabitants had some rights to shelter and a fair hearing and made recommendations for resettlement.

El Comité Panameño por los Derechos Humanos denunció ante la Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos (CIDH) al Estado de Panamá por el despido arbitrario de 270 empleados públicos y dirigentes sindicales, que habían participado en distintas protestas contra la política gubernamental en reclamo de sus derechos laborales. El despido se produjo luego de que el Gobierno acusara a estas personas de haber participado en aquellas manifestaciones de protesta y de resultar cómplices de una asonada militar.

Los demandantes interpusieron acción de tutela contra varias instituciones estatales por no cumplir con su misión de proteger a la población desplazada y por no dar respuesta efectiva a sus solicitudes en materia de vivienda, acceso a proyectos productivos, atención de salud, educación y ayuda humanitaria.
