Employment law

Employment law is a vital field for every business as even the most technologically advanced and digitalized processes require the use of human workforce. It is the employment law compliance that follows just after a new company is established and before any operations commence. It administers the rights and obligations within the employer-employee relationship, including health and safety at the workplace, salaries’ formation, working hours requirements, remote work, etc. Employment law further spreads over a broad range of legal matters including discrimination and harassment at the workplace, whistleblowers’ protection, personal data processing in the work context.
