Employment

For your business to be successful, you must manage your employees and their benefits as well as your employee representatives such as works councils and unions. Yet from executive contracts and equal opportunities to restructurings, transfer of business issues and restrictive covenants, employment and pension law is complex and, at times, contradictory.
