We represent our Clients in all employment-related disputes, including those involving termination of employment, competitive activities, harassment or discrimination, payment of remuneration or bonuses, overtime, disciplinary penalties, social security benefits and accidents at work. Often our support begins at a very early stage of the conflict, in order to prepare an appropriate litigation strategy or take steps to avoid the dispute.
Our experts have many years of experience in carrying out the most complex restructuring processes in the HR area. This applies in particular to changes in employment due to mergers or demergers of employers, as well as due to other internal reorganisations.
Terminating relation with an employee is usually associated with a certain level of risk and emotion. We work with our Clients to ensure that every dismissal process is well thought out, smooth and above all safe. This applies to individual dismissals (both for economic and employee-related reasons) and group dismissals.
We represent our Clients in disputes with ZUS (the Social Insurance Institution). We advise on how to shape the employment policy so that it is both advantageous for employers and safe for them.
COMPLIANCE AND REGULATIONS
We provide comprehensive support services concerning compliance of conduct and internal employment-related procedures with applicable requirements. We introduce new labor law regulations required by law or best practice. Our support may also consist in the verification of regulations already functioning in a specific company. Our goal is to provide our Clients with modern, tailor-made and legally secure solutions.
We design and verify complex programmes concerning additional benefits for employees. This concerns both financial benefits (various types of bonuses and allowances) and all other benefits (additional days off or maternity benefits, sharing programmes, e.g. of means of transport, other guarantees aimed at making work in a given company more attractive, etc.).
RELATIONS WITH TRADE UNIONS AND EMPLOYEES’ REPRESENTATIVES
Our experts have many years of experience in dealing with relationships and disputes with employees’ representatives, including trade unions and works councils. Experience tells us that the best results are achieved by employers who are able to arrange their mutual relations in a well-thought-out manner and on the basis of dialogue, while remembering to exercise their rights.
Although the current legislation does not always reflect this, the employment market and employer-employee relations are changing dynamically. We advise Clients not only on how to respond correctly to these changes, but also on what solutions to introduce before the competition does. Our experience includes the implementation of flexible and innovative solutions in the field of working time, on-call time, employee relocation, remote working (permanent, hybrid and incidental), loyalty and incentive schemes.
We conduct tailor-made training courses for our Clients in all areas of employment and labor law, including, for example, working time, harassment and discrimination, internal documentation, monitoring, changes in law, etc. Our aim in this field is to provide the employers’ internal services with practical knowledge, enabling them to correctly solve current problems.
