From R$ 1,609.46 to R$ 3,218.90: 11 %(*)

The employer's contribution will always be 12% irrespectively of the rate applied to the employee. It is important to remember that the social security contribution is also assessed on vacations plus one third.
The Work and Social Security Card (CTPS) is an official document issued by the Ministry of Labour, in which all work agreements shall be recorded there. Its completion is mandatory in any labour relation. The employee cannot work without the CTPS.
In case of work agreement with monthly payment, after 30 days, the employer is obliged to pay the salary agreed upon the admission through a receipt in two counterparts (the second will remain with the employee) up to the 5th business day of the subsequent month. The payment will occur after the obligations are met. After the salary is agreed between the parties, it cannot be reduced.
