Labor Law Attorneys in Brazil

arbitration attorneys in brazil

Being an employer in Brazil can be a wearisome task as the labor laws of the country are numerous and not always clearly defined. For instance, did you know that there are laws about hiring and firing employees so onerous, that many employers feel it’s not even worth it to hire; while at the same time employees find it beneficial to be fired? Strict laws prevent bosses and workers from negotiating changes in contracts, even if they both agree.

Some businesses have lost their shirts in court due to faulty record-keeping. It is common to hear people saying that labor in Brazil is expensive. This is not because the workers themselves are making large salaries, but because there are so many taxes and hidden costs – not to mention fraudulent cases frequently taken to the Labor Courts.
