The story of the JBS lawsuit is all over the news and it is causing a lot of stir. Recently a senior manager from JBS, one John Sullivan was arrested in London on suspicion of conspiracy to fraudulently defraud the company. He is being investigated for possible bribery of government officials. The charges against him come on the heels of a corruption scandal at the meatpacking industry where JBS acquired a huge stake through a secret deal. This means that this scandal has cut to the core of the business and it could have serious consequences for the rest of the world’s meatpacking industry.
There is a huge problem with JBS because there is no way of knowing what the company’s true intentions are. There are rumors circulating that the company plans to buy out its current competitor, John Deere. It also has stated that it plans to expand into other areas of the meatpacking industry, such as frozen food. Whether these rumors are true or not we do not know but one thing is certain, the lawsuits have put the spotlight on this corporation and has caused a great deal of concern among citizens all around the world. There have been hundreds of people who have lost their job and many more who are contemplating quitting because they believe that they will lose everything they have worked for just because they did not toe JBS’s line.
What can be done to stop this situation? There are many lawyers who specialize in dealing with the massive amounts of lawsuits that are filed on a daily basis in this industry. Many of these lawsuits were brought on direct-mail complaints about poor workmanship and abuse of workers. These cases can have huge financial and emotional impact on the families who have lost loved ones and jobs due to JBS’s wrongful acts and lack of compassion.
