On 1 December 2023, an Ordinance came into force, setting out much-awaited detail for employers on the requirements of the new salary transparency reporting obligations. The Ordinance was issued by MTE. It provides that, for the purposes of creating the report, MTE will collect the data which employers insert into the eSocial system, as well as additional information. 

Employers will also be required to submit prescribed information into the Emprega Brasil Portal section of the MTE website. The first deadline for submission of this data is 29 February 2024.

MTE will then publish employers’ salary transparency reports in the months of March and September, on its Labour Statistics Platform.

It is important to note that all information provided in relation to salary transparency reporting obligations must be anonymised and in accordance with local data protection laws.
