Labour disputes are disagreements between the participants in an employment relationship arising from a legal relationship between the members of the employment or the legal relationship relating to them. These are some of the most sensitive disputes, as employees are often treated as a more vulnerable party to a dispute. The Labour Code seems to regulate the legal relations of the parties, indicating how to act in different situations in order to avoid disputes and protect the interests of both employer and employee, but understanding the concepts of the Labour Code and applying them correctly in practice requires special knowledge and legal experience.
With this in mind, we recommend that our clients consult lawyers before making any decision regulated by labour law in order to avoid future disputes between the participants in the employment relationship and to the maximum extent to protect the interests of the employer (unfair competition, non-compliance, unjustified benefits, reputation, know-howknow-how, confidential information, etc.) and employee (severance payments, leave, working time, non-compete obligations, right to fair pay, etc.).
Our team has experience and provides consultations in the following areas:
- Representation in the Labour Disputes Commission and in the court
- Representation in negotiations
- Consultation, advice, legal assessment of the situation
- Preparation of legal documents: notice of amendment of employment contract, notice of dismissal, request for clarification, complaint, notice of violation of labour discipline, etc.
- Preparation of contracts: employment contract, confidentiality agreement, non-competition agreement, rules of procedure, job descriptions
