Labour law must be reconciled with a business’s operational constraints and our labour law team advises and supports companies with all issues related to human resource management at an individual level.
Our labour law team will be actively involved from the outset of any employment relationship, which begins when you hire the employee. We advise companies on which type of contract (permanent, short-term or temporary) is best suited to their short, medium and long-term requirements, and which clauses should be included given their business fundamentals and constraints.
Drafting an employment contract is a crucial and complex procedure, as it will bind the parties throughout their entire relationship. This means that it is essential to draft individual contracts suited to the requirements and issues of your specific company (confidentiality agreement, non-compete clause, mobility, bonuses etc). When a contract is well drafted it protects companies from disputes and secures the employment relationship especially in highly competitive sectors or when dealing with sensitive, confidential data.
Our team becomes a key partner for your business, supporting and advising your HR Directors and General Counsel on any issues that may arise during an employment relationship.
We offer targeted expertise in the knowledge that every sector has its own specific internal issues and collective agreements. Areas we cover include all aspects of remuneration and bonus policies, organisation of work, protecting your data and business from competitors etc.
Our team advises and assists companies facing employment disputes. This includes preparing and launching disciplinary proceedings, setting and monitoring employee targets, suspension or breach of an employment contract, amicable settlements or court proceedings.
Penalties are easier to apply if your company has previously adopted internal regulations specifying the procedures and rules best suited to your own business requirements. They must comply with applicable legislation.
