In the context of disciplinary termination of the employment contract, the Chilean legislature has regulated a special kind of abandonment, which consists in the employee's unjustified or without notice absence to work, in case he or she is in charge of an activity, task or relevant machine within the company. If the absence seriously disturbs or affects the employer, then the Labor Code understands that the employer is entitled to terminate the contract. It is a figure of misconduct or temporary abandonment that requires serious damage effects, and provoked by an offender who has no replacement.
Palabras Clave: Abandonment; absence; termination of contract.
