From the 16th day onward (unlimited), Social Security pays for the leave (up to BRL 7,087.22 – value for 2022), but some CBAs do require an employer to supplement employees’ monthly earnings (pay them the amount corresponding to the difference between the Social Security pension and the employee’s salary), for a certain period.
Female employees are entitled to 120 days’ paid maternity leave and an extension of a maximum of 4 weeks, on medical grounds (2 weeks prior + 2 weeks after birth).
Fathers are entitled to 5 days’ paid paternity leave (following the birth or adoption). Pay is 100% of regular wages and is paid by the employer.
After each period of 12 months worked, employees are entitled to a 30 calendar days’ paid vacation + public holidays.
There are also other types of leave in Brazil.
After 1 year of employment, employees are entitled to severance pay. Employers contribute 8% to the FGTS, during employment and employees are entitled to withdraw the amount corresponding to the sum of their deposits, depending on how the employment is terminated.
