Employment & Industrial Relations

 

Our Employment & Industrial Relations team advises companies on all aspects of employment law and Industrial Relations on a regular basis. We regularly provide advice on contracts of employment, EPF and SOCSO contributions, employment and professional visit passes, employment handbooks, union recognition and collective agreements, disciplinary action against employees, the termination of employment for misconduct or poor performance or redundancy, voluntary separation schemes, the closure of businesses and the change of ownership of businesses due to restructuring or mergers or acquisitions. We believe that legal solutions must not only be sound but practical. 

We also provide legal representation in litigation matters governed by the Industrial Relations Act 1967, Employment Act, 1955 and the Trade Unions Act, 1959. These matters include unfair dismissal claims (direct and constructive dismissals), forced resignation claims, collective bargaining in the Industrial Court, and applications for judicial review in the High Court. Our lawyers regularly appear before the Industrial Court, the Labour Court, the High Court and the appellate courts for such employment matters.
