Employment

Description

 

Along with corporate law and tax law, labor law is the field of law with which foreign investors most frequently come into contact in Ukraine. All companies, at some point, will need to change in order to make the most of all the opportunities in the market. Restructuring, outsourcing or other organizational measures to improve your organization or reduce costs require precise implementation in relation to employment law. The management of your staff is an important factor for success.

If a dispute does become unavoidable, your company needs experienced legal representation, which will effectively and successfully relieve the pressure on your company and you. As a management board or director, there will be times when you will need advice when drawing up your employment contracts, adapting them for future developments, or negotiating severance models. You may have to defend yourself against unjustified claims; we collaborate with experts from other specialist departments at Nobles in this regard.
