Employment and Labour Law

Issues relating to employing people are more and more essential for businesses. Profitability growth is always driven by motivated people. Employment issues are also invariably sensitive. Even more so in the current global economic crisis. Hence, proper organization of the work process can be crucial for the market performance and reputation of each company.
