MPT approves dismissal of those who do not want to get vaccinated



Sao Paulo – The Public Ministry of Labor (MPT) released yesterday (9) a technical guide for the institution’s prosecutors, in which it defends that workers who refuse to be vaccinated against covid-19 can be dismissed for just cause.

issued by the Public Ministry of Labor, the institution lists standards
about health and safety at work to demonstrate that the objective
vaccination is to guarantee the fundamental right to life and health of the worker.

In addition, the MPT uses as an argument in favor of dismissal the decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) that the State can impose sanctions on those who do not get vaccinated, such as a fine, impediment of enrollment, among others.

institution, dismissal for cause could act as one of those
measures, provided the CLT rules are followed.

however, that the dismissal would only occur in more extreme cases and that,
before, other actions would be foreseen.

“The sense of compulsiveness of the vaccine today is more in the sense of collective protection, so, in theory, you could impose restrictions on those who unjustifiably refuse to take the vaccine (…). Ultimately, punishment could be reached as the just cause, ”he said.

vaccine requirement for workers.

be a way to make workers aware of the importance of

So she has an obligation to make all employees aware of the need for vaccination. The company has to ensure the well-being of the collective of workers it houses ”, says Patah.

Premature discussion?

Claudio Maierovitch, ex-president of Anvisa and sanitarist of FioCruz in
Brasília, vaccination is important to prevent the spread of the virus and help
in the recovery of the economy and in the improvement of public health.

The discussion
possible sanctions, however, is premature, as there is no vaccine yet
for all.

“We need
that people get vaccinated. We have few vaccines and we have an overwhelming majority
of the population wanting to get vaccinated. So, the discussion of dismissal for just
cause is not stated. We must debate if the problem arises ”, he says.

According to the MPT document that admits the dismissal of workers who do not get vaccinated, it is up to the employer to adopt vaccination as a collective protection measure, in addition to providing employees with information about the importance of vaccination for the protection of themselves and their colleagues. job.

according to the guide, the vaccine can only be refused in exceptional situations and
justified, such as allergy to its components, medical contraindication,
pregnancy, among others.

In such cases, the company must adopt measures of work organization and collective and individual protection for workers.
