Black Mountain works closely with the Fortus Group, our trusted HR partner in Brazil. Maxwell Brewster, Director of International Clients for the Fortus Group, recently prepared an article for us, explaining key differences with Brazilian labor laws compared with those in New York.

When compared to other countries, one notes that the difference is large, even after this minor modification. It is a fact that many would say that in Europe and the United States, job opportunities, working conditions and wage levels are very different from Brazil. Even so, the topic often comes up.
