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. CRS checks does not use the National ID when conducting background checks in Brazil.
