Bolsonaro vetoed a law that exempted the worker from justifying a week’s sick leave during the pandemic

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro vetoed a bill on Thursday that frees workers from justifying their absence from work for seven days during the new coronavirus pandemic.

The text, which had been approved by the Congress of Representatives and only allowed quarantined workers to produce certificates on the eighth day, was pushed back by the Brazilian president because it “runs counter to the public interest.”

Bolsonaro has referred to the words of the Department of Health, which has caused this Labor Party initiative to “create legal uncertainty” due to its “technical inaccuracy”.

In this sense, Health stated that the project was in conflict with previous quarantine laws and measures against Covid-19, and that this was not necessary even when isolating isolation and quarantine.
