Brazil’s top labor court knocks down request for BASF, Shell contamination fund payment

Brazil’s top labor court has knocked down a judge’s order that Shell Brasil...and BASF...deposit $382 million into a fund for workers allegedly contaminated at a chemicals plant. An emailed statement from the court...says its lead judge ruled a day earlier in favor of an appeal against immediate payment. A class-action lawsuit seeking compensation from the companies remains before the labor court. A federal judge...ordered the subsidiaries of Royal Dutch Shell...and BASF...to pay into the fund now. Prosecutors sought the order, saying the cash should be immediately available in case workers win the overall lawsuit. Both Shell and BASF welcomed the new ruling and say they will abide by all legal decisions in the case.
