Understand the main doubts about the validity of an electronic signature:
The electronic signature is a simple way to sign an online document but it has several technological resources to prove its validity, such as Authorship, Integrity, Intention and non-repudiation, Timeliness and Confidentiality.
While an electronic signature is similar to a "digitalized" handwritten signature, but with more secure attributes for the registration of its authorship and integrity, a digital signature is made only through a digital certificate in the form recognized by ICP-Brasil. Very few people have a digital certificate and the procedure for acquiring it is time-consuming and costly. The digital signature has proved to be unfeasible and not widespread.The government has even recently enacted laws and measures to make it unnecessary for public services, with few exceptions.
The legal validity of the electronic signature is recognized in Brazil in several contracts and documents in general, except when a specific form is required by law. In the case of documents used by the HR team, such as an employment contract, communications, terms, statements, time sheet, admission kit and others, they are allowed and recognized in the face of the use of electronic signatures by the Ministry of Labor and Employment.
