Employment & Pensions

Chile

We understand that the working dynamic of your company is based on people and their performance. Legal services capable of adding value in the areas of professional formation and labor relationship, along with its termination and collective negotiations, are the ones that have an impact on the professional performance of individuals that comprise companies, and in turn, have an impact on the business and results of the same.

We provide you integral advisory services in labor and social security issues, particularly in the areas of preparation and review of employment agreements, collective negotiations, immigration, visas, social security, and the structuring of compensation packages as well as incentives, and when conflicts are beyond avoidance, we are amply capable to represent you in areas such as mediation, negotiation, and litigious action.

Our team carries out constant follow-up of norm developments, and of the criteria applied by the administrative authorities as well as by the Courts of Law, so as to be able to deliver timely and adequate solutions.

Due to the economic impact as a result of the social unrest in Chile at the end of 2019, and the current contingency of COVID-19, our Employment & Pensions experts have been advising our clients, operating in various sectors such as fintech, banking, transportation and services; in matters of reorganisation, dismissals, as well as in the application of Law No. 21.227 on "Employment Protection" and possible conflicts that may arise with unions due to the measures that companies have had to take regarding their personnel.
