    Brazilian airline Gol must cover the cosmetic costs of their female flight attendants and airport staff following a labour court's decision, with a union official saying the ruling could influence other professional sectors.

    In the Jul 29 verdict, reported by local media this week, the court said the firm must "provide, free of charge, to all its female employees, the makeup set provided for in its personal presentation code, as well as pay for cosmetic procedures" including manicures and hair removal.

    Gol's women staff, unlike the men, were contractually obliged to devote part of their income to modifying their appearance, southern state Santa Catarina's labour ministry court said.

    In compensation, the airline will have to pay women US$42 (220 reais) per month for the expense.

    Although the Brazilian labour justice system has issued similar rulings against individual claims, this is believed to be the first class action.

    "This decision may influence other professional sectors where women are forced to wear make-up, because if it is upheld by the courts ... It will set a precedent," said Clauver Castilho, director of the National Union of Flight Attendants.

    He estimated the class action consisted of "some 4,000 women" - including flight attendants, crew members and airport workers.
