The employee was diagnosed with depression and acute stress due to bullying and excessive workload

The Bahia court ordered Correios to compensate an employee with R$200,000 for moral harassment and excessive “work”.

In a decision published on May 7, the 2nd Panel of the Regional Labor Court of the 5th Region, of Salvador, confirmed the sentence, complaining of “excessive service resulting from poor management of the legal sector, which caused serious psychological distress. Already the simple description of the events in the North demonstrates a lack of respect for the dignity of the worker, subjected to humiliating working conditions that are harmful to her health.”

By majority, the judges decided to maintain the value of the compensation, recognizing that Correios had “a structural line of moral harassment in relations with its employees” and should have compensated the lawyer for not having taken “the necessary precautions to ensure that the damage didn’t happen.” occur, therefore there is a legal or objective liability on the part of the defendant [os Correios] to compensate for the damage caused.”

The lawyer, who joined Correios via public examination in 2007, continues to work from home. In 2017, he reported to the Labor Public Prosecutor the pressures and unequal treatment he suffered at work, highlighting the work overload and harassment he suffered. The following year she was diagnosed with depression and acute stress and was removed from duty on several occasions.
