Employment and labor law, work permits, residence permits
We advise employers and employees on employment rights and labor law.
We examine and edit employment contracts and operational, personnel and expense regulations; we advise on human resource matters (transfers, warnings, dismissals, release, mutual termination agreements, etc.) and help write references.
We provide support in matters of job cuts (announcements, mass layoffs, social plans, etc.) and corporate takeovers (Swiss Code of Obligations, 333).
In labor disputes we act as legal representatives before labor or industrial tribunals as well as courts of law.
If and to the extent necessary (restrictions to freedom of movement), we apply for work and residence permits for foreign employees; we operate clients’ human resource and payroll departments, advise on activities in Switzerland involving notification of government agencies and represent clients in the state’s employee authentication proceedings (illegal worker checks).
