Potential litigation in agricultural and cattle raising activities

Zung Che Yee, Ricardo Ralisch


This review discusses the different nature of potential litigation in agricultural and cattle raising activities, which are segmented into rural workers and rural employers. It analyzes lawsuits pending in the Labor Court, as well as in the Common Pleas Court, within the scope of State and Federal Civil Court rules. The objective of this analysis is to promote a better understanding of these legal problems among professionals in the area of Agronomy, who have, traditionally, little information on them. A detailed description of the each litigation, as well as of the pertinent legislation, are provided, to give rise to discussions and reflections on these problems, which are part of these professionals’ everyday life. Litigation involving companies and rural properties, with emphasis on technical inspections carried out and on the type of professional involved will be analyzed, together with the nature of the knowledge necessary for their interdisciplinary education.
