Summary

Read the final statement issued by the Brazilian NCP concluding the specific instance - 23 July 2015


In August 2010, the Brazilian NCP received a request for review by the trade unions Bank Workers Union of São Paulo, Osasco and Region and Unified Workers' Central (CUT) alleging that Fidelity National BPO Brasil had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines by dismissing a trade union representative without fair cause and breaking of relations with the trade unions.

On 27 February 2015, the NCP accepted this specific instance for further analysis.

After being made aware of the specific instance, on 9 April 2015, Fidelity sent their reply regarding the allegations. In their response they informed the NCP that the company had ended its activities in April 2011, having disbanded their subsidiaries, and having had only stayed active to answer questions regarding possible employment issues. Fidelity therefore requested that the specific instance be concluded.

Given this information it was not possible for the NCP to pursue the specific instance further. The NCP issued a final statement and duly concluded the specific instance.
