RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The House of Representatives in Brazil approved a proposed law to change the definition of terceirização (outsourcing) in regard to labor law. Specifically the proposed law addresses what types of business activities can be defined as eligible for outsourced labor, and avoid the legal "encargos trabalhistas" (employment costs) such as taxes and travel and meal allowances afforded to those workers.
