Synopsis This dissertation is a study of the employee’s activities and possible changes that may occur within certain limits. The development of this study will be conducted through the contrast of the LCT legislation and the 2003 and 2009 legislation. So, at first, corresponding to the second chapter will be addressed to determine the activity of the employee, which will include the analysis of the principle of contractuality of the object of employment agreement and available ways to the parties define the activity, referring to understanding the same associated to the notion of category and dissociated from this notion. The third chapter will focus on the first type of functional flexibility that the Code offers us, the so-called “principle of functional versatility”. Initially we will focus on the origin of its inclusion in the LCT and the analysis of the regime so that later we have the necessary conditions to address how the regime of functional versatility was pictured with the Codification. Finally, in the fourth chapter, we will focus our attention on the second modality of functional flexibility that the employer has at its disposal, we talk about jus variandi, ie, the possibility of variation in activity contracted, within certain limits. It will examine in particular the background, the characterization, the requirements and the effects of it regime.
