A Brazilian Labor Court ordered Vale to pay individual compensation of R$1million ($200,000) for moral damages to families of workers killed in the collapse of the Córrego do Feijão mine dam in Brumadinho, in 2019.

The disaster killed 270 people but the court action only benefits the families of 131 workers directly hired by Vale, which would result in $26 million total payment.
