Conviction in the Appellate Court: change of Criminal Law may impact the release of amounts in the Labor Courts

10/01/2020

Proposals to amend the Criminal Law that would allow arrest as of the decision issued by the Court of Appeals may enable workers to receive amounts prior to the end of the labor lawsuit.

If the Congress approve the proposed amendments, Labor Judges may use the understanding of Criminal Law to allow plaintiffs to receive amounts resulting from a decision issued by the Regional Labor Court.

In the past, some judges followed this understanding when the Supreme Court decided for the possibility of determining arrests before a definitive decision and about R$ 29.7 billion were released and paid to workers in 2018.

Our labor and criminal areas have been monitoring the legislative updates and can assist you with any questions you may have.
