Labour law

No matter whether a start-up, a medium-sized company or a major corporation - employees are of substantial importance for each enterprise. That is why comprehensive and reliable advice on all the related issues is absolutely essential. Particularly in labour law, it is not only the purely legal and economic situation of the persons involved that plays a key role, but also their personal situation in many cases. Accordingly, your advisor at SNP Schlawien does not only have an outstanding legal expertise, but also the required strategic and tactical thinking.

Frequently, our clients approach us for multifaceted concerns: Be it the drafting of employment and service agreements, advice on flexible working time and pay models, negotiations with works councils and trade unions or - in cases of dispute - their representation in company conciliation committees, arbitration proceedings, as well as proceedings before labour courts right up to the Federal Labour Court.In addition to medium-sized companies, we also support management and supervisory board members as well as managing directors. We have special knowledge in the IT/software, energy, automotive, commerce, real estate, event management, insurance and healthcare industry, as well as municipalities.
