The employment department specializes in providing both companies and private clients with the necessary guidance to act legally in the workplace. Having some multinational companies as clients, the employment team is fully prepared and qualified to provide legal assistance both to foreign companies based in Portugal or abroad and to Portuguese companies as well. Our Head of Department has an Advanced Certificate in Employment Law from the UK as well as a Post Graduate in Portuguese Employment Law.
The Employment department deals with several day to day issues occurring in the workplace often on a retainer basis covering legal opinions, drafting employment contracts as well as other internal communications.
We are also often appointed by clients to conduct disciplinary proceedings, and we collect the statements of witnesses, draft the necessary reports, and produce the final decision setting the applicable penalty ranging amongst other, from verbal or written warning, to suspension without pay, and dismissal with fair reason. Representing both employers and employees before negotiation trials and employment arbitration are amongst the wide range of services provided.
Due to the vast experience of the firm with major clients the employment team has also been involved in due diligences covering the legal aspects of employment on a transfer of business. Legal representation in Employment Tribunals is also provided whenever required as well as legal advice both in Portuguese and UK employment law and EU regulations on employment matters.
We also attend meetings before official entities as well as Unions and Employment Associations.
