Employment and Labour Law

We are always happy with the content of legal documents drafted by Lexia. They are excellent in formulating answers and finding solutions and new point of views. This applies to all of the Lexia people we have worked with.

Our employment team receives deserved praise. We offer expert advice and options with carefully considered risks in terms of the client’s business.

Entering into an employment relationship is a major decision for the employee and employer alike. It involves money, time and human capital. Understanding employment contract law and receiving legal assistance offer confidence and support for decisions and ensure the best outcome even in case of potential problems.

Certainty for difficult situations

Our experts offer assistance in all employment questions with extensive experience of companies of different sizes and from different fields of business. After studying the client’s business and strategy we offer potential solutions with carefully weighed risks. We see human resources as an entity and can offer practical advice and the best recommendations for each situation.

We can help with the unpleasant aspects of employment law, such as co-determination, layoffs, outsourcing and disputes. Very often, error prevention starts with a carefully prepared employment contract that is clear for both parties.
