Employment Law

Human capital is a most important asset for any business, and can become in specific circumstances a considerable liability.

As it is often not easy to find the right person for the job, it is extremely important to be able to propose an appropriate salary package and have a good work atmosphere. It is almost impossible to overestimate the importance of good working conditions. Businesses benefit from motivated employees who engage with a business for the long term. Mutual respect between employee and employer is often the basis of a successful business.

Employing personnel entails a great number of social obligations and mandatory legal rules that can cause significant problems for the employer in the event of non-compliance.

Because employment relationships are not always smooth sailing, clear sanction schemes are absolutely necessary. When this turns out to be necessary, it is of great importance that an employment relationship is correctly terminated.
