Employment & Labour Law Division

Employment and labour law are often the areas entrepreneurs believe they can easily handle themselves. Some come from established businesses and believe they can repurpose the policy documents, the codes of conduct, and disciplinary procedures they experienced at another firm, on their own. There is no simple copy-and-paste solution for employment and labour law compliance that will truly serve your brand. Establishing these processes within your organisation is about more than just legal compliance.

When you start a company, it is important to hire experienced employment and labour law representatives. You don’t have to use the services continuously, but establishing your company culture and the way in which you will handle all of your HR matters on an ongoing basis will come from the initial groundwork that dictates your bespoke company policies.

This will be the foundation from which you can legally operate your HR division in terms of managing employees’ leave cycles, disciplinary practices, codes of conduct, and other disputes that may arise.

Our labour law and employment team is experienced in identifying the best ways forward to minimise the risk factors that may present themselves down the line.
