Employment & Pensions

Employment is a rapidly developing area of regulation and international and domestic businesses in Oman are increasingly facing labour and employment law issues. These include visa issues or disputes. Our employment specialists can work in partnership with your legal and human resources teams to provide advice on all key aspects of employment law, and employee benefit schemes. This is a complex area of law with rules established by national legislation and case law.

The lawyers in the CMS Oman office have significant experience in handling advisory and contentious employment matters in Oman. The team advises on the negotiation, drafting and interpretation of Omani employment contracts and has considerable expertise in effective employment law dispute avoidance measures.

If your business crosses borders, you have to contend with a myriad of labour and employment law issues 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, employee benefit programmes, restructuring, employment disputes, employment aspects of M&A transactions and trade union relations. A 280-strong group of employment and pensions specialists worldwide can help you navigate a maze of regulations, policy documents and other legal complexities you face on a daily basis.
