“The Defendant (Cruise) did not pay the severance payments in time and manner, did not correctly collect the FGTS, with several jurisdictions outstanding, as well as did not correctly pay the thirteenth and expired vacation, as detailed below. In an attempt to minimize the loss , the Respondent voluntarily provided the Complainant with a list of all open and unpaid funds, see annex.
