A Brazilian research company posted a job advertisement on LinkedIn that indicated a preference to hire candidates of Black or indigenous groups. LinkedIn removed this job advertisement from its job board platform citing its anti-discrimination policy, as per its parent company in the United States. In response, LinkedIn received backlash from Brazilians, as it was legal to indicate such job requirements in line with the affirmative action laws in Brazil. This case showcases how the socio-economic backdrop of Brazil forced LinkedIn to change its stance on equal opportunity employment advertisements in Brazil. Students are asked to examine what steps a multinational company like LinkedIn should be mindful of to avoid ethical conundrums when operating globally.
