EMPLOYMENT LAW

 

The employment legal advice provided by us is comprehensive and modern. From day-to-day human resources to handling employment disputes, our firm is experienced not only to initiate actionable decisions but also understand the commercial realities of our clients in the market. We believe that only a more people-centred approach can achieve the right objective.

 

That said, modern employees and employers are facing rapidly changing regulations, growing demands of labour unions and talent sourcing. It is crucial for employers to be aware of the latest employment regulations and market trends. A systematic risk management portfolio must be established.  With the aid of alternative dispute resolution, we also assist our client to reach collective bargaining with workers to resolve large scale work disputes.  In addition, we help companies to maintain suitable employment benefits to retain high-potential employees to steer the business to success.

 

Regardless how complex the employment issues, we are here to help companies overcome the challenges and become market-leading employers.
