There are no employment laws regulating workplace investigations in Brazil. This means that employers are not legally required to conduct workplace investigations except to substantiate the dismissal of a union legal representative. These representatives have protection against at-will termination, and in case of a termination for cause, it is required a previous judicial inquiry.
