As a business law firm, we are constantly dealing with employment law issues. In this domain, the design of employment contracts, particularly for senior executives, is also one of our areas of expertise, including the assessment of specific causes of dismissal or redundancy. Furthermore, we have experience in the drafting of flexi-time arrangements and we are becoming increasingly active in the shaping and negotiation of "atypical" employment contracts.
People commonly underestimate the potential dangers that can arise due to legal provisions, particularly for part-time agreements. It is essential that employment contracts are written in legally correct wording. If they are not, avoidable problems may arise, such as excessive overtime charges or, in the case of GPLA-assessment, taxes may be levied, even though the related employee payments have not yet been made.
Naturally, we also handle litigation pertaining to labor and social law. Our expertise ranges from claims against decisions of pension insurance funds (disability pension) to disputes concerning voluntary pension schemes.
In this field, we represent both employers and employees, which gives us a particularly useful insight into the mindsets of both parties involved in such cases.
