Employment background checks are gaining in popularity in many parts of South America, including Brazil. There are many different laws that may impact an employer's background screening program including various pieces of legislation that afford privacy protections to individuals.
It's important to note that there currently is no comprehensive data privacy law in Brazil. However, there are many laws that have privacy components in them. In particular, the Brazilian Constitution outlines that the privacy, private life, honor and image of persons are inviolable. Further, the Constitution guarantees habeas data which guarantees an individual the right to access and correct information held in public records. The Constitution also prohibits discrimination in the hiring process and/or during the employment relationship based on gender, color, marital status, origin, family status or age. Consent should be collected from the data subject prior to submitting a background check request.Finally August 14, 2018, Brazil approved the General Data Protection Law (LGPD). The law will come into effect after its 18th adaptation period, in early 2020.
LGPD brings a series of legal instruments that allow for the international transfer of personal data based on the specific and express consent of the data subject, which must be prior and separated from the other purposes and requisitions of consent.
Since 2010, Brazil has actively considered a personal data protection law. The most recent version of the Draft Bill for the Protection of Personal Data was published in October 2015.

There is no comprehensive data privacy law in Brazil however; there are many laws that have privacy components in them. The constitution in Brazil guarantees habeas data rights. It is permissible to conduct background checks in Brazil, but only if you have the individuals consent to do so. The subject should only be denied employment if the results of the background check prove that the subject 's ability to work would be substantially impaired. It is very important to be aware of this as companies that deny employment based on the results of background checks for other reasons could have a liability for discrimination.
The CPF number (Cadastro de Pessoas Fisicas) is an 11 digit tax identification number unique to each individual. Both citizens and non-citizens are issued CPF numbers. They are required in order to do any financial business in Brazil such as pay bills, obtain a cell phone or open a bank account. This number is required when conducting most background checks in Brazil, since only one number is issued to each person.
Individuals in Brazil can also hold a National ID number. This number differs from the CPF number as it is issued at the state level. This means that a National ID number could potentially be issued for a person in each state of the country. It is a possibility that if the individual commits a crime in one state they could obtain another National ID number in another state and provide the new one for background checks moving forward. Info Cubic does not use the National ID when conducting background checks in Brazil.
At Info Cubic, data privacy and protection is of the utmost importance.
