Expertise

Our Employment and Labour Practice team has a robust track record in advising and helping the corporate and business community on all employment, health and safety and pension fund issues, with a special focus on dispute resolution and commercial transactions with an impact on employees. Examples of such transactions are corporate restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, outsourcing arrangements, collective terminations/ redundancies and labour law compliance audits; all of which typically have implications for employee pensions, benefits or conditions of service.

The team has also done significant work for clients involving the structuring of staff handbooks and human resources manuals, terms and conditions of employment benefit schemes, employee reward structuring and Human Resource trainings.

The Employment and Labour team’s experience in the area of dispute resolution spans the entire spectrum of private and statutory forums and mechanisms, including arbitration, the Labour Officers, the Industrial Courts, the Commissioner for Labour, among others.
