In today's expanding global economy, employers increasingly find themselves in unfamiliar legal territory. The challenges inherent in moving employees abroad also include the possibility of the need to conform to local employment laws, which may offer differing levels of employee protection compared to the home state.
Many labour law issues require carefully drafted staff regulations and accurate contracts to avoid unnecessary legal and personnel costs. These contracts and policies also need to address social security, pension and insurances, working hours, non-competition and business relation clauses, safety regulations, internet protocols, occupational injury and employer's liability, which become even more important and complex for expatriates who are assigned from or to another country.
Our legal experts specialise in (international) labour law. This area can not be considered in isolation because it is highly influenced by tax, social security and pension legislation. Our unique integrated approach takes all these aspects into account, ensuring one successful solution.
With our specific knowledge and practical expertise, we support our clients' executives and local HR staff who may not have sufficient time and/or expertise to address these matters in an efficient manner. We provide support in reaching amiable solutions in labour law disputes and where necessary we can advise on labour litigation law, litigation strategies, termination conditions and redundancy payments whether it regards an instant, individual or collective dismissal.
