Ipea publishes Policy Brief on the IPC-IG’s project about labour justice systems
The brief “Estudos de casos comparados sobre sistemas de jurisdição trabalhista”, available only in Portuguese, was just launched by the Institute for Applied Economic Research (Ipea) in partnership with the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG). It is a condensed version summarising the main results of a comparative international analysis of the labour law systems of Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Portugal, South Africa and South Korea—countries that signed the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
The Policy Brief is part of the project "Strengthening Information Production and Management related to Labour Justice to Expand Knowledge and Improve the Brazilian Justice system", a partnership between the IPC-IG, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Ipea. It features a summary of six country case studies, chosen based on their socioeconomic characteristics, judicial structures and degree of labour litigation. The full report will also soon be launched in English by the IPC-IG.
The study looks at labour rights, employment relationships, dismissal regulations, collective labour rights, management of the conflict resolution systems and efficiency of the labour judiciary systems. The study also provides recommendations about challenges that Brazil needs to overcome in this area.
