News of the moment. Are you ready for next week?
After a request for examination by Justice Gilmar Mendes, a trial is scheduled to take place between May 19 and 26, in the virtual plenary session, regarding the analysis of the constitutionality or unconstitutionality of the decision made by the then President of the Republic Fernando Henrique Cardoso on the application of ILO Convention 158.
What will this decision impact?
If it is decided that the President’s Decree was unconstitutional, it can be defined that Brazil must adopt the rules of ILO Convention 158, obliging companies to justify any and all dismissals. This means that even if the employee is dismissed without cause, the reason why the company proceeded with the dismissal must be informed.
We will wait for the judgment to bring to everyone the impacts and consequences resulting from the decision, as well as any necessary changes that should be adopted by the companies.
