Labor Law

17. March 2021

We offer comprehensive advice on all facets of labor law relating to standard business activities and to special projects or court proceedings.

We have specific experience in drafting agreements for executives, including compensation, post-contractual non-competition clauses and secondment provisions, also with standard employment contracts for employees (pay-scale staff, other staff and managers) tailor-made to the needs of our clients.

One focus of our work is advising on business transfers and on the restructuring of businesses or operations. We assist our clients in all issues relating to business transfers, outsourcing, data protection, changes in the business and also to the winding down of a business operation. This spans all aspects of individual agreements and collective bargaining agreements, from adjustment of working conditions, information of employees, to negotiations with works councils and unions and post-merger integration.

If staff changes are unavoidable, we conduct negotiations for you to achieve reconciliation of interests and a severance scheme – including participation of conciliation committees – and assist in setting up transfer companies. Our work comprises the entire process, from conception and implementation, to enforcement by the courts.

We also offer extensive advice on compliance matters, structures and systems and employee data protection (including negotiating employment agreements on data protection and issues of permissibility of monitoring and screening).
