This is the video about the first Lesson of our Module 'F.O.L.-Inglés'. It is the first one and the sound should be much better. Anyway, I hope it will help you with the bilingual subject.
This is the dialogue I had prepared for Evelyn and me; It may hell you to understand it easily.
Hello to the listeners; I am Isabel Pérez, a teacher of English-FOL and I have prepared some notes about Labour Law for you.
LET ME INTRODUCE MY GUEST FOR TODAY:
WHAT’S YOUR NAME?
WHERE DO YOU CAN FROM?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN LA ROSALEDA?
She is going to make me some questions and I’ll try to answer them, THE BEST I CAN.
1. First of all, can you give me a definition of Law?
Law is a set of rules that govern our society.
2. There are many different Laws in Spain: European Law, International Law, Criminal Law, Employment Law, and so on. Please, can you tell us what Employment Law is?
Employment Law is a set of rules that governs the relationship between employers and workers.
It is important to say that Employment Law is about the rights and duties of workers and employers.
3. Which are the three main pillars or principals of the Labour law?
Talking about pillars or principals of the law is the same as if we talk about the bases of a building. Therefore, the bases of the law are three:
Justice. To give a definition about justice is quite difficult. If you surf on the net, you’ll find thousands of definitions. For me it is quite simple ‘you play, you pay’ (quien la hace la paga).
2. Legal Security: we all should be treated in the same way, without any kind of arbitrariness. We are talking about being treated without non discrimination; to have equal protection of the law; to be equal before the law.
3. The Common Goods: these are the values of our society: freedom, family, properties or possessions etc.
4. In the Spanish law, we can distinguish between formal sources and material sources; please, what is the difference between them and could you give us some examples of each one?
On one hand, we have different rules in Spain; and on the other hand, there are several institutions that make those rules.
Therefore, we say formal sources and we are thinking of the different rules; for instance, the Spanish Constitution, the European Directives, the international treaties, the ordinary law, the regulations, the collective agreements, etc.
Who makes all these rules? In this case, we are talking about the material sources; for instance: the Parliament, the Government, a Minister, the institutions of the European Union, etc. All these institutions can make law.
5. Finally, we have been talking about rules, parliament, government and judges. One way or another we have been discussing about the separation of powers. Can you tell us something about it?
You say ‘the powers’ so that means we there are more than one. In fact there are three powers:
The legislative power; that is the Spanish Congress and the Senate.
The executive power: the Government which is composed by the President and his Ministers.And finally, the judicial power, which is the judges and the courts
