Labor law

Human capital is among the most important determinants of success in business. Thus, the widely understood labor law is of key importance when taking decisions in respect of the business activity conducted by a company.

Errors in applying labor law may not only lead to proceedings before labor courts but also end in penal proceedings and disputes with tax authorities. Creating clear, fair and lawful rules of work organization, especially in the area of issues linked with work time and remunerations, ensures a favorable environment for companies to prosper and stimulates employees’ productivity.
