The new Chambers and Partners Employment 2023 guide covers over 50 jurisdictions. The guide provides the latest legal information on terms of employment, non-compete and non-solicitation clauses, data privacy law, foreign workers, the role of unions and employee representative bodies, termination of employment, employment disputes and dispute resolution.
Our employment law team advises across the full spectrum of employment, compensation and benefits issues, whether arising in an advisory or transactional context, contentious or non-contentious. In this respect, we advise on the hiring of employees, termination of employment, redundancies, employee rights in mergers and transfers of undertakings, employee share option schemes, matters related to maternity leave, sickness and misconduct procedures, advice on HR issues, on equality and diversity, compliance with all aspects of anti-discrimination legislation, disciplinary and grievance procedures, data protection issues, and provident and pension funds issues. Our firm also provides assistance when non-EU citizens are to be employed in executive positions with companies belonging to foreign interests, guiding them through the special procedures leading to the grant of the relevant work and residency permits, as well as family reunion permits for their dependants. We also assist EU employees in registering and obtaining their permits, albeit under a more simplified procedure.
