The Spanish legal system is in a state of permanent reform for years. The wider reforms have been in the labour field due to the impact of the economic crisis on employment. The latest labour reform has been driven by the government of Mariano Rajoy. This paper will focus on this topic. This labour reform will be analysed taken into account the relation among the different actors involved and its scope in order to determine if this transcends the sphere of Politics and involves the destruction of liberal democracy.

Furthermore, this labour reform will be compared with the previous ones to find their differences and similarities, and to measure the impact of each one of them.
