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. However, hindsight is always 20/20 and it is not uncommon that employment disputes will arise.

As an employee, you will need to know what you are signing. Or whether you have been unfairly treated.

Silvester Legal LLC will give you succinct, practical advice on your recourse in employment disputes.
