EMPLOYEES ARE YOUR MOST IMPORTANT BUSINESS ASSET. PLANNING FOR THEM CAN AVOID UGLY DISPUTES LATER ON.
EMPLOYMENT LAW (COMPANIES)
Singapore’s economy is as vibrant as any in the world. Inevitably there will be employment issues that may arise; Unfair Dismissal, Retrenchment, Unlawful Termination, Non-compete clauses, Confidentiality agreements and Restraint of Trade Clauses are just some of the areas we have expertise in.
Of course, the best way to deal with the issue would be to ensure that the employment agreement itself is fair and truly reflects the nature of the employment relationship. It is always advisable to have your employment contract reviewed by an experienced lawyer before you sign it. However, hindsight is always 20/20. Employment disputes are increasingly common.
If you wish to ensure that your company has an employment contract for your employees that covers all obligations, come to us for drafting/ vetting of employment contracts.
If you are an employee, you will need to know what you are signing and your legal rights and obligations thereunder. Or whether you have been unfairly treated. We will give you succinct, practical advice on your recourse in employment disputes.
