Employment law

Employment and employee representation

Employment law is one of our niche areas. Our employment law specialists have in-depth knowledge of the legal aspects of employment relationships. We help HR and management make decisions on a wide variety of matters concerning the employer-employee relationship. We provide support in issues such as dismissal, non-competition clauses, employment contracts and restructuring. If litigation is needed, we go the extra mile to win.

Discussions about agreements in an employment contract are the order of the day. Common discussions include agreements on salary, holidays, continued payment of wages in the event of sickness or bonus payments. When an organisation introduces change, it is likely that employment law issues will follow. Issues can include individual or collective dismissal, restructuring, the involvement of the works council and issues relating to cross-border labour relationships. Even if an employee has already resigned, there may still be issues that merit discussion, such as a non-competition clause, a non-solicitation clause or a confidentiality clause.

Prevention is better than cure. Therefore, it is wise to seek advice on matters relating to labour law. We have a team of experts that advises and litigates in this area of law.

We help with the drafting and adaptation of standard documents, such as employment contracts, freelance contracts, management contracts and staff manuals. We also provide guidance and advice on illness dossiers, dismissal procedures and restructuring.
