Employment & Pensions
Regional Employment is a rapidly developing area of regulation in CEE. Our employment specialists in the region can work in partnership with your legal and human resources teams to provide advice on all key aspects of employment law, employee pension arrangements and employee benefit schemes.
This is a complex area of law with, at times contradictory, rules established by EU and national legislation. Having been at the forefront of changes to legislation in these areas in several countries in the region, CMS lawyers have a unique grasp of the issues to provide practical and commercial strategies and solutions for your business.
I always found the lawyers to be very technically strong with a good depth of knowledge and experience. The whole team was very willing to provide practical advice and opinions, and that is invaluable.
If your business crosses borders, you have to contend with a complex framework of employment in order to achieve the best outcome for your business. With a global network covering 34 countries, we can help you address these challenges in all the countries in which you operate. We advise clients across jurisdictions in relation to employment and executive contracts, pension schemes, employee benefit programmes, restructuring, employment disputes, employment aspects of M&A transactions, works council and trade union relations. A 280-strong group of employment specialists (worldwide) can help you navigate a maze of regulations, policy documents and other legal complexities you face on a daily basis.
In Poland we have a 9-strong team of lawyers dealing exclusively with the most sensitive and most difficult aspects of labour law. Our practice is recommended through international rankings, and is highly recognised in the market.
