Supreme Court Judge Luis Barroso annulled all provisions of an ordinance of the Ministry of Labor and Social Security that prohibited companies from firing employees for not being immunized.

In Brazil, companies may resort, although as a “last measure”, to the dismissal of their workers who do not have vaccination certificates against the coronavirus.

This Friday, Supreme Court judge Luis Barroso annulled all provisions of an ordinance of the Ministry of Labor and Social Security that prohibited companies from firing employees for not being immunized.

“Minister Barroso suspended the ordinance of the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare that prohibits the requirement of proof of vaccination for the hiring or maintenance of employment of workers. The court order was issued after the request presented by the political parties,” pray a publication of the judicial entity on Twitter.

The magistrate considered that demanding the documents that verify the inoculation “does not constitute discrimination”, just as it ruled that the presence of an unvaccinated person in the workplace represents “a threat to the health of others“.

However, the measure does not apply to individuals with medical contraindications, to which the alternative of being periodically tested for the disease may be offered.
