From adagio actori incubit onus probandi, in the following we refer the
particular aspects of evidence in labor disputes in terms of the provisions of the
Law art.271-273 No. 53/2003 on the Labour Code and art.212 Law No.62 / 2011

This study examines from a historical perspective, hermeneutics,
teleological and comparative aspects concerning the burden of proof, the principles
underlying the legal procedure of proof in labor disputes, as well as the judge's
active role in ensuring a fair trial.
