The Law nº 13.467 of July 13, 2017, sanctioned on the basis of Projects of Law nº 6.787/2017 (Chamber of Deputies) and nº 38/2017 (Federal Senate), after only four months of processing, contemplates the Brazilian Labor Reform, which modifies, creates and flexibilizes the Labor Law Consolidation (CLT), created by Getúlio Vargas in 1943. Some points approached by the Brazilian Labor Reform are: flexibilization of certain rights (interval time within the workload, fractionation of vacations, workload); changes in temporary employment contract; new roles conferred to the unions; the prevalence of the negotiated to the legislated; creation of the intermittent contract; changes related to working time; among others. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine Law 13.467/2017, which establishes the Brazilian Labor Reform, aiming to identify, from a labour environmental perspective, positive and negative impacts on the labour environment and on the worker's health, mainly due to the changes related to the duration of work (workday, breaks and vacations) and labour environmental conditions. To do so, as a method of procedure, the survey will be used through the technique of bibliographical research and, as a method of approach, the deductive. Thus, the importance of this discussion rests on the need to analyze the consequences of this new legislation and its synchrony with the labor-law framework. (AU)
