Modern slavery: new challenges in Brazil


Brazil’s bid to join the OECD and the growing impact of corporate social responsibility on the reputation and evaluation of companies are bringing higher scrutiny to the topic of modern slavery in the country.

This issue of LS Brazil Outlook addresses changes in mechanisms to file complaints against multinationals companies in the context of the OECD bid. It also discusses the importance of compliance programs to avoid criminal liability in an article by guest author Natasha do Lago. Two other articles detail civil and labor-law consequences of slave-like work being found in any stage of a company supply chain.
