The article aims to claim that the notion of human dignity can play a relevant role in private law, both in civil law and labor law. It is argued that Jeremy Waldron's understanding of the concept of human dignity as a rank or status can provide a concrete content to the concept, forbidding any humiliating or degrading treatment to any human person. Then, the article analyzes some projections that can be articulated from this interpretation in the context of the law of contracts, the law of torts and labor law.
