Employment and Labour Law
Labour law is of great importance to employers and employees. The number of labour regulations and the interplay between them make it relevant for both managers and employees to take advantage of legal advice in relation to e.g. laws, collective agreements, employee manuals, and individual agreements.
Our experts have experience from all areas of labour law within the private as well as the public sector, and we draw up a wide spectrum of relevant documents both in connection with the establishment and the termination of employment relationships:
- Employee manuals
- Agreements in connection with cases and disputes
In addition, we conduct court cases on behalf of our clients regarding:
- Equal treatment
- Wrongful dismissal
- Summary dismissal
- Discriminatory treatment
- Duty of loyalty
- Non-competition and non-solicitation clauses
When our clients are planning major organisational restructurings, we represent them at the negotiating table – for example in connection with:
- Outsourcing of work areas
- Acquisitions and sales of businesses
- Negotiations with unions and organisations
We also draw up incentive and bonus schemes tailored to the individual requirements of a business. In addition, we have great experience in cases concerning collective agreements, with respect to the interpretation of such agreements and in relation to the handling and negotiation of disputes.
As our competences cover a wide field, we are able to advise clients in all lines of business, including the pharmaceutical industry, the construction industry, the IT and telecom industry, the food industry, and the advertising business – just to mention some of the various business sectors to which we provide services.
