For your business to be successful, you must manage your employees and their benefits as well as your employee representatives such as works councils and unions. Yet from executive contracts and equal opportunities to restructurings, transfer of business issues and restrictive covenants, employment and pension law in Europe is complex and, at times, contradictory. European directives, European court decisions, national laws, local cases and precedent must all be taken into account by your management team. Our 280-strong group of sector specialists can help you navigate the maze of HR regulations, policy documents and other legal complexities you must contend with on a daily basis. Please get in touch with one of our experts which you can find below.
