Brazil’s Labor Laws

by jparker

There is a good article over on The Economist, “Employer, beware,” about labor laws in Brazil and how onerous they can be to employers.  According to the article “They are costly: redundancies “without just cause” attract a fine of 4% for the total amount the worker has ever earned, for example.  (Neither a lazy employee nor a bankrupt employer constitutes just cause.)..In 2009, 2.1m Brazilians opened cases against their employers in the labour courts.  These courts rarely side with employers.”
