Brazil Finds Slave Labor at MRV Sites, Agencia Brasil Reports

MRV Engenharia e Participacoes SA, a Brazilian homebuilder, may receive a fine of as much as 11 million reais ($6.1 million) for allegedly employing workers in slave-like conditions at two construction sites, Agencia Brasil reported, citing a prosecutor at the Labor Ministry.

Workers at two sites in Sao Paulo state were living in “degrading conditions,” in improvised shelters where garbage wasn’t properly collected, Prosecutor Cassio Calvilani Della-Dea said, as quoted by Agencia Brasil.

MRV said it hasn’t received any document related to the charges, according to an e-mailed statement. The two cases cited in the report happened more than 10 months ago and were immediately resolved, according to the statement.
