Collective employment law

Your staff play an important part in the success of your business.

Yet everyday business activities place many demands on employers and employees. Flexible working (involving flexible hours or working from home), “bring your own device” and the use of social media during working hours are issues that impinge in one way or another on almost every business.

Businesses are increasingly processing large quantities of data relating to their employees and using it for a wide variety of purposes within the company or group; employees must be given detailed information about these activities. Moreover, in many cases this requires a company agreement to be entered into; the data – and hence the data processing systems – must not be used before this has been done. This often poses major difficulties for internationally active groups that are planning to introduce global systems, and it can put them under considerable time pressure. If there is no works council, it may be necessary to obtain the consent of all the employees.

We draw up company agreements, declarations of consent and information letters to employees, and we can support you in negotiations with works councils.

We can support you in negotiations with works councils, helping you find solutions that are acceptable to both sides and do not damage the atmosphere of the workplace. We can also handle notifications to the Data Processing Register and make all the necessary preparations for applications to the Data Protection Authority for approval of international data transfers.

We have 15 years’ experience of these often very difficult and bureaucratic procedures, and this enables us to bring them to a rapid and positive conclusion.
