The state registered 6.467 million resignation requests in the past 12 months through July, among workers with formal contracts. This is a new record, despite persistently high unemployment and difficulty returning professionals to the job market.
This number is equivalent to 32.4% of the total layoffs in the period (19.984 million). in another meaning, 1 in 3 terminations were voluntary (at the request of the worker).
The survey was conducted by LCA Consultores and takes into account data from the General Register of Employees and the Unemployed (Caged), which calculates official jobs in the state. The record takes into account the period from January 2020, the beginning of the historical series trapped in the current methodology for counting vacancies.

In both the 12 month period and in July, São Paulo remained at the top of the states with the largest number of resignations. This is due to the fact that the state is the most employed in the country.
All union units recorded the largest number of resignations since January 2020 in Accumulated in 12 months.
previously in july Most states set a record for dismissals, with the exception of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, Parana, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Bahia, Sergipe, Alagoas, Pernambuco, Paraíba and Amapá.
Still compared to January 2020, the number of layoffs in July doubled in some states in the two comparison bases.
According to Bruno Imaizumi, who is in charge of the research, the numbers keep the labor market normalization in motion.
As the economist says, At the beginning of the pandemic, many people ended up accepting jobs without having anything to do with their training. As the effects of the pandemic on the labor market diminish, professionals are resigning to be accepted into jobs more suited to their qualifications.
“Many people have remained in jobs that do not match their qualifications due to the need for some income regeneration during the pandemic. But many of them are starting to quit their jobs to take on more suitable ones,” he says.
The Returning to work in person is another factor affectingespecially in specific jobs, is more focused on the service sector where it is possible to work from home.
“However, for workers who have seen this method as unhelpful in terms of quality of life, this return to the work environment ends up weighing in on the choice of the professional, who would rather work from home than pass every day,” he points out.
Imazumi explains that the 12-month period has broken consecutive records of resignation requests, and this should continue, because more months of 2022 entered the survey, the year of labor market normalization, and months of 2021, which were still a period of uncertainty and workers were in jobs that did not match with their training.
Activities with the most resignations
Regarding the stock of job vacancies, that is, the total number of jobs with a formal contract, the housing and food sector was the one that registered the most resignation requests in July.
Sectors of administrative activities and supplementary services. professional, scientific and technical activities; Information and Communications comes next with the highest percentage of resignations among the total vacancies. As a result, there is a movement of resignation requests mainly from more qualified professionals and from hotter sectors, such as information technology. See the graphic below:
To get the data by sectors, Imaizumi adjusted the total number of workers in each activity (number of vacancies) to get more accurate information, because in the case of trade, the number of workers is large.
According to Bruno Imaizumi, the accommodation and food sector remained primarily because it was an activity that was significantly affected by the epidemic.
“Now, with the sector recovering, many workers are quitting, with new restaurants, hostels and hotels opening, because they are getting better offers than elsewhere,” he explains.
The other three sectors with a higher percentage of resignations are associated with more technical job vacancies that allow remote work.
