The Economic Freedom MP proposes a number of measures that seek to reduce red tape and improve legal certainty for economic activity in the country. The proposal amends laws such as the Civil Code and the Consolidation of Labor Laws (CLT).
According to Görgen, changes have been made to prevent the text from being challenged for possible conflicts with the Constitution.
Among the points taken by the rapporteur are:
- Civil law in employment contract – The proposal amended the consolidation of labor laws to allow employment contracts with wages above 30 minimum wages to be governed by civil law, subject to constitutional guarantees.
- Transportation (amnesty and single document) – The deputy created the Electronic Transport Document, which must be issued in every way of transporting goods in the national territory, by any means. DT-e will be the only means of transport and also provides for an amnesty for compensation payable by freight carriers for non-compliance with the first shipping table set by the National Land Transport Agency in 2018.
- No more motorcycle hazard add-on – The proposal found the end of the 30% premium on the health hazard of motorbikes, taxi drivers and those who use motorcycles to exercise the profession.
The rapporteur maintained the following point in the text, as amended:
- Work on a Sunday – MPs work on Sundays and public holidays. At this stage, the rapporteur changed the text of the special committee to give the staff a rest at least one Sunday for a maximum of seven weeks. Now he has gone back, resuming the text of the Special Committee, providing for a day off at least one Sunday of the month.
The rapporteur predicts that the proposal will help create 4 million jobs in a decade with the improved business environment that the MP intends to promote.
"The text we are giving Parliament is a breakthrough. If there is common sense and political sensitivity, there will be no obstacles and we will have at least a majority approval," said Görgen.
The MP was issued by the executive branch on April 30 and is now in force. However, it must be approved by MPs and senators by August 27. Otherwise, it will expire.
Among the main points supported are:
- on exemption from previous authorizations for small traders and service providers;
- on digital work portfolio;
- the possibility of digital public documents, with the same value as the original documents;
- a system that allows Unified Health System (SUS) doctors to dispense digital prescription drugs,
