Employment & Pensions

Morocco

Companies are now faced with four key challenges in terms of employment policy:

  • Guaranteeing the best possible legal protection 
  • Meeting market demand with more flexibility in terms of human resources 
  • Building solid labour relations based on loyalty and motivation
  • Dealing with the financial implications of their employment policy
  • Our mission is to help our clients meet these challenges 

Our Practice Areas

We advise our clients on collective and individual labour relations and on the employment implications of their strategic decisions, providing advice and handling disputes in the following areas :

  • Senior management contracts/ negotiated departures
  • Flexible working arrangements, 35 hour week Pay and employee share ownership policy
  • Collective bargaining and employee representation 
  • Job rescue plans and redundancies 
  • Collective and individual disputes (labour relations, social security audits, etc.) 
  • European harmonisation of human resource policies Pension plans and other employee benefits
  • Managing international mobility
  • National and international restructuring
  • Employment audits on acquisition  

Our Approach

  • Drawing together legal and tax expertise from across the firm : many employment issues are so complex that they require expertise in other areas, such as tax law for dealing with senior management contracts and international mobility, or company law for dealing with restructuring. 
  • Methodological precision : evaluating needs, strategy, focus on anticipating potential problems, handling disputes, providing support at all stages of our client's business operations 
  • Ability to handle international issues through dedicated, multi-lingual lawyers who are well-versed in international employment practices
