Justice decides for reinstatement of bank workers laid off in pandemic



São Paulo – Labor Courts have granted injunctions favorable to the reinstatement of bank workers dismissed during the pandemic. One of the main arguments recognized by judges in the lawsuits is the fact that the country’s three largest private banks have made a public commitment not to fire during the pandemic period.

Adriana Aguiar report in the newspaper Value takes stock of the situation of labor lawsuits that have been motivated by layoffs in the pandemic. According to the report, 11,087 labor cases were distributed this year with the terms pandemic and reintegration in the initial pieces. The numbers are from the jurimetry platform Data Lawyer Insights. Of the total, 417 were against Santander, 283 against Bradesco and 177 against Itaú Unibanco.

Itaú Unibanco has laid off 130 employees since September and Bradesco promoted 566 dismissals this month, the confederation informs.
