Judge orders Vale to pay $190 k for each worker killed in Brumadinho

A Labour Court ruling has determined that mining company Vale must pay compensation of 1 million reais ($190 k) for moral damages for each employee killed due to the rupture of a company dam in January 2019 in Brumadinho (MG). The company argued that it has already paid more than 2 billion reais ($385 mm) in civil and labour compensation associated with the disaster, after having signed agreements with more than 1,600 relatives of victims.
