Bus/Financial - Other / Employer Financial Report
|Portuguese term or phrase: MULTA S/FGTS (com o vr do av prévio)|
|Hi, can anyone help me with this section of a financial report? It's taken from the financial report of a Brazilian company, specifically relating to the costs of employment in their customer service centre. |
I am assuming the S/ is a short version for sem, and know what the FGTS stands for. I also know the av prévio is short for aviso prévio which I believe in this context would be something along the lines of notice period. However, I'm not sure what the vr is an abbreviation of, or if fine is an appropriate translation of multa in this context.
Can anyone offer any suggestions? Thanks!
|Fine on the FGTS (with the amount of the 30 day severance pay)|
MULTA S/FGTS (com o vr do av prévio) => multa sobre FGTS (com o valor do aviso previo) => Fine on the FGTS (with the amount of the 30 day severance pay)
FGTS: protecting workers and promoting social development in Brazil
The Brazilian government created the Fundo de Garantia do Tempo de Serviço - FGTS (Severance Pay Fund) in 1966. The triple objective was to provide severance pay in cases of unjustified dismissal, create a savings fund for workers and use the fund to finance housing and water and sanitation programmes. Moreover, for the last 21 years, all decisions about administration of the fund and the use of its resources have been taken by a tripartite body, the Conselho Curador do FGTS - CCFGTS (FGTS Board of Trustees). The report describes the history and structure and performance of the FGTS and discusses whether it can be replicated elsewhere.

|Thank you! I went with a slightly different translation in the end, but appreciate clarification of what "com o vr do av" stood for. Turns out I had it right but always good to double check! |
