Employment law advice
Employment law advice, for your personnel abroad
Many companies, in particular small and medium enterprises, do not have an in-house legal specialist. However, employment law advice is necessary for many human resource matters. Particularly in respect of cross-border work and foreign employment law, you may have practical questions that cannot be answered internally.
Furthermore, employment law and dismissal law are of a mandatory nature in most countries. This means you will have to know exactly which rules are mandatory. For example, in some countries you are required to prepare the employment contract with your employee in a specific language. This may be dependent on the location of the company’s registered seat, or the location where the employee performs his tasks.
In theory, you can independently determine which employment law you follow. However, mandatory provisions such as those concerning termination of employment, incapacity for work and working hours apply pursuant to employment law as imposed in the country where the employee works.
Due to mandatory provisions and local differences, it is not easy for employers to do this first time right. In all phases of your employee’s employment, it is important to make the right choices.
