Employment law

We are experienced in advising especially employer clients in all aspects of employment legistlation. We are familiar working with both Finnish and foreign companies. However, we are also pleased to advise clients in an employee position and managing directors.

Expertise in employment law matters

Employment matters have a crucial importance in the course of business operations as in individuals’ everyday life. It is important to be fully informed about the content of the rights and obligations identified under one’s agreement, whether working as an employee or acting in the role of a managing director. From the perspective of the employer, well-organized personnel management and carefully drafted agreements for the employees and management mitigate personnel-related risks and also increase the commitment of the personnel. The employer should put effort especially on the agreements concluded with the management and other key employees. In case of organizational reforms, good planning and preparation will not only mitigate risks but could also help to maintain a good employer profile.

Invalid non-compete undertaking will not serve its purpose and a bonus clause with inadequate phrasing could expose the company for unexpected costs.

  • Agreements with the employees and management, covering also exit arrangements in mutual understanding

We have understanding on the legal issues arising from the modern forms of work. Shortcomings in the compliance with the employment matters surface to publicity easier than before.

We want to help our clients thrive in a responsible manner.
