ASSUNCAO-MATOS, Alfredo  and  BICALHO, Pedro Paulo Gastalho de. Work, outsourcing, and the brazilian Legislature: paradoxes and controversies. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.2, pp. 120-129. ISSN 1984-6657.

The objective of this article is to analyze the Brazilian Legislature in relation to outsourcing as a management model and its implications for making work more informal and flexible. Initially, we situate some changes that occurred in the world of work in the form of exploitation of human capital, arising from the Taylor and Ford systems. We have analyzed the structural crisis of the '70s and its effects on relations between work and workers, with a brief analysis of the '80s, when flexible capital accumulation was implemented, and as a result, globalization of the economy and a radical technological transformation took place. The article discusses the functioning of the Brazilian Legislature and concludes with notes on the Law 4.330/2004 Project, by Rep.Sandro Mabel (PMDB-GO), whose principal characteristic is to permit outsourcing in so-called end-activities.

Keywords : Organizational psychology; work; outsourced services.
