The labor and social security portfolio, also called the CTPS, is the document responsible for recording all Brazilian or foreign professional activity that works under the CLT (Consolidation of Labor Laws) regime.
It shows the date of admission, length of employment, salary, payment of unemployment insurance and PIS, vacation and the date of leaving the employment. Through these registries, it is possible to guarantee to the worker labor rights as the retirement, the unemployment insurance and the Fund of Guarantee by Time of Service (FGTS). Also serves as an identity document.
The procedure is through an internet schedule on the website of the Ministry of Labor (MTE); for this purpose, the foreigner must have a CPF (personal registration with the Ministry of Finance) and must have a temporary or permanent visa, but that allows him to work.
