The team of professionals from the Labour Department consists of lawyers specialised in the legal problems arising in the labour area, with a strong vocation and company experience. The majority of them come from the business world, where they have developed managerial functions both in the field of labour relations and in the management of human resources. All of this allows them to offer the client an eminently practical view of the problems and strategies of management.
Our Firm offers advice based on anticipating the risk, which allows the client to adopt his strategic decisions with the greatest legal security possible. The principal objective is always to avoid conflicts and minimise responsibility.
Labour relationships in the business are characterised by the dual collective and individual aspect. This makes essential the appropriate handling of the state or sector regulation and the labour sociology, that is to say, the analysis and prevention of internal phenomena of action and reaction that each company decision may involve.
Our team of professionals offers preventive advice to companies through a quota system, which aids coordination and creates confidence between the professional and the businessman, or through correct advice on those themes of maximum interest which can be, for example, crisis situations involving redundancy measures.
Labour Tribunal and Social Security
The growing complexity of the Spanish system of Social Security makes its proper knowledge and obligations and consequences of special importance to the Management of a Company. Our team makes a plan of these contingencies, analysing the fulfilment of the obligations of the rate with reference to salaries, levels of application, discounts, etc.
Act 31/1995 for the Prevention of Occupational Hazards and its later development establishes a new concept of safety and hygiene in the workplace. The extraordinary economic relevance, both civil and criminal of the eventual business responsibilities in this field make it essential to rely on the advice of specialised and expert professionals.
Always trying to find negotiated settlements to matters, and thus avoiding the difficult road of a jurisdiction that is especially protective of the rights of the workers, our professionals advise clients in accordance with the interests in play and the dominant strategy in their business.
The concept of negotiation not only refers to crisis situations, but also to the regulation of the more diverse labour aspects in the framework collective agreement negotiations or in the increasingly more common, Company Agreements.
Our lawyers work to define the respective reserve values; the control of negotiation periods; the selection of negotiators and the application of negotiation techniques that are the most appropriate to the company circumstances, unions and strategies of each case.
