In the 2019 edition of Shepherd & Wedderburn’s European Employment Law Update, the most important legislative changes over the past 12 months across Europe and those that are likely to affect businesses in the coming year are outlined. The guide compiles updates from 32 leading law firms across the continent. A number of countries are dealing with the ramifications of European Union decisions on annual leave accrual, and working hours. With ageing workforces, another common theme is change to the retirement age in a number of jurisdictions. Progress on diversity initiatives is also reported.
Partner Yiannis Karamanolis provides the Cyprus update, on behalf of our firm, which focuses on the latest developments in relation to pregnant women and new mothers in workplace, and a recent landmark decision of the Supreme Court of Cyprus on the application of the Protection of Wages Law in criminal cases.
