This is not the most exciting aspect, but Brazil has very strict employment policies. Every employee has a "work passport" with photo ID. Before hiring, and emploer must provide 3 months of sick pay up front as, in essence, a down payment to the government for future benefits. There are minimum wages, sick leave, maternity leave, vacation days ... all protections you would expect as an emloyee in the US.
