The Public Labour Prosecution Office has the constitutional mission of promoting and enforcing labour-related law in the context of enterprises, companies and public employers.
It aims at enhancing and improving labour relations and further promoting better working conditions to all, especially those in state of vulnerability such as people that are subject to slave labour, child labour and other kinds of indignant working conditions.
In light of this constitutional mission, the Labour Prosecution Office independently prosecutes and investigates companies around the country and the Prosecutors and their Assistants oftentimes face challenges such as threats, opposition and real danger while trying to get access to companies, to talk to employees and workers and to thoroughly investigate working conditions in the context of these companies.
Having prosecuted big, multinational companies such as Shell Basf, Caterpillar, Nestlé and many other, the Labour Prosecution Office plays a relevant role in the whole country and keeps trying to improve its reach and to get more knowledge of legal and scientific standards that will help carrying its mission out.
I'm a 25-year-old Legal Assistant working at the Public Labour Prosecution Office in Brazil. My expertise is labour law and employment and my main goal in joining NAMATI is to get in contact with lawyers and paralegals from around the world and to learn as much as I can about legal empowerment so as to bring this knowledge back to my own day-to-day work at my organization.
Be part of the movement for legal empowerment.
