Employment law

Employment law affects anyone who has an employment contract. Say that, for example, you have resigned and your employer points out a non-solicitation agreement or non-competition clause in your contract. What is the best way to deal with this? Or the company you work for is taken over by or has merged with another company. How does this affect your employment contract? Perhaps you are made redundant or have been dismissed with immediate effect. Are you entitled to protection against dismissal? And does your employer actually have a compelling reason to terminate your employment contract?

Do you disagree with the termination of your employment contract?

You might disagree with the termination of your employment contract. How can you challenge your dismissal? Are you entitled to severance pay? Who can apply the sub-district court formula to calculate your compensation? And are you still entitled to unemployment benefit in the event of culpable dismissal? These are just a few of the many employment law related issues that could arise when confronted with a dismissal procedure.

Employment law for both employers and employees

Naturally, employment law does not only uphold the rights of employees. How do you for example meet the requirements for collective dismissal in the event of a reorganisation? What should be incorporated in a termination agreement? Is applying for a dismissal permit really necessary? How do you best deal with a wage claim or re-employment? As an employer, there are also many employment matters that you may wish to have reviewed by an expert lawyer.
