Luiz Cunhao, a doorman who worked at the Botafogo for 18 years and was fired in 2020 without just cause, he sued the club in the Labor Court claiming not to have received FGTS and foreseen fines, in a case of R$ 40 thousand, informs the Blog do Diego Garcia, from “UOL”.
The lawyers of the former alvinegro employee try to charge the value of the new SAF from Botafogo, and not from Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas, claiming that the BFR has the same address as the SAF, “constituting a group with correlated economic activity”.
The SAF Law, in turn, makes it clear that the new company is free to answer for the club’s liabilities in court, being able to transfer 20% of the revenue and 50% of the dividends to the association to pay off debts.
The blog, on the other hand, claims that there is a difference in the case of employees outside the club’s football, as is the case with the doorman. In this case, says the report, the law states that the SAF would not be liable for the club’s obligations.
Botafogo stated that “it has joined the Centralized Execution Regime – RCE, provided for in Law 14.193/2021, and is restructuring its labor, civil and tax debts with monthly payments being made within the order and criteria endorsed by Organs competent bodies”.
