According to reports, former Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar (31) was referred to the Saint-Germain-en-Laye labor court in connection with undeclared employment. Le Parisien. The 35-year-old Brazilian mother of four children claims that from January 2021 to October 2022 she worked seven days a week at Neymar’s house in Bougival. Her work was not reported. The plaintiff is demanding $368,000 from Neymar and is threatening the Brazilian to take the case to criminal court.
Given the mission and pace of work of Neymar’s domestic help, the outlet understands that the case smacks of modern-day slavery. According to Le Parisien, a domestic worker was forced to work until two weeks before the premature birth of her fourth child. She never returned to her post. The domestic worker started working for Neymar as an assistant chef to celebrate the PSG player’s 27th birthday in 2019.
“This is human exploitation.”
Since 2021, the Brazilian has worked more often for the former Barcelona playmaker. So much so that she reportedly worked up to 60 hours a week for Neymar, which is 20 hours more compared to the conventional working hours of a domestic worker. She reportedly earned €15 an hour, twice as much on Sundays, and was paid in cash. She did not receive a single payslip from Neymar, had no vacation, paid leave or medical check-up due to her pregnancy.
After giving birth to her fourth child in October 2022, she no longer received any information from Neymar or his assistants, forcing her to go to food banks to provide for her family. “This is unacceptable, being Neymar and taking advantage of the vulnerability of an undocumented woman, and a Brazilian at that. This is human exploitation“, adds Nellma Barretto, president of Femmes de la rsistance, a charity that helps Brazilian women in precarious situations.
The housewife’s lawyers sent a letter to Neymar asking for a financial settlement – the letter went unanswered. Therefore, the lawyers took the case to the labor court.
Neymar took advantage of our clients’ uncertainty to impose unworthy working conditions on her, in violation of the fundamental principles of labor law– lawyers add. “We deplore that such a personality could demonstrate such inhumanity, even going so far as to throw our client out of her home just days before her premature delivery when she complained of pain. We are now considering giving this case the criminal prosecution it deserves.“
– said one of Neymar’s representatives Le Parisien that the currently injured quarterback Al-Hilal was not notified about the case.
