Employment, pensions and benefits
Employers have an ongoing need for advice, representation and in-depth knowledge of employment, reward and civil rights matters. The assessment and management of risk arising from the employment relationship is a key requirement for all organisations, wherever they are based or operate from.
Our lawyers provide guidance through structural change; handle senior executive appointments and severance; and manage employee relations, policy matters, works councils and trade union issues and disputes.
We advise and litigate on equal employment opportunity and discrimination-based issues and defend and prosecute claims involving the protection of business assets and reputations.
The team has extensive experience in handling complex, politically sensitive, employment-related matters, including multi-jurisdictional collective and class actions. Our lawyers also assist with senior employee international mobility and compensation and benefits issues.
We work alongside clients in the development and maintenance of their benefits and pension arrangements, offering guidance on the replication of applicable arrangements in multiple jurisdictions as appropriate.
We keep clients informed on proposed legislation and regulations affecting all aspects of the employment relationship and support clients with seminars, conferences, specialist newsletters and our online support products.
