In the area of Employment Law, our primary focus is to provide consultancy and advisory services to prevent issues arising. This is achieved by being on-hand to guide employers through the necessary steps to conform to their legal obligations. We establish a close relationship with a client’s HR department and become a part of your team. Our long-term clients have ongoing access to our expertise before making any significant employment-related decisions.
Introducing the Right Procedures and Policies
We help you establish the right company culture by drafting:
Watertight Employment Agreements, Employment Rulebooks, and other Rulebooks
We regularly help clients design, document, review, and operate all types of employee benefit plans and compensations, including health and welfare, retirement, employment, incentive bonus, and severance programs.
Zunic Law organizes internal on-premise and online employment compliance training for HR and Management. We strive to go beyond just a check-the-box compliance course to deliver an engaging and interactive experience for our clients by providing real-life examples and practical guidance for employers.
Our attorneys specializing in Labor and Employment Law are often invited to give presentations and lectures on different aspects of the employment law.
We advise on disciplinary measures, consensual and unilateral termination of the employment, to eliminate any risk for the employer.
We offer an off-the-shelf service, starting from negotiations to the final termination date, which includes completion of such a non-pleasant procedure without any time resources of the employer.
Internal Dispute Resolution and Out-of-Court Labor Dispute Resolution
Zunic Law Firm provides comprehensive legal support in dispute resolution through mediation, conciliation, arbitration, and internal resolution, in order to avoid a lengthy and often compromising litigation. We also guide employers through the proper conduct of disciplinary proceedings.
Employment Dispute Resolution
If a dispute arises, our attorneys are on-hand to immediately step in and guide our client to the most cost-effective and efficient resolution. Our clients appreciate the fact that we always give realistic assessments. For this reason, throughout over 30 years of the Zunic Law Firm’s existence, our employment litigation record has been exceptional.
We put a special focus on dispute resolution that include:
Annulment of Termination of Employment Agreement
Annulment of the Annex to the Employment Agreement
Health and Safety, Protection from Discrimination and Harassment at Workplace
A healthy and safe working environment is not just a legal requirement – it is a question of the company’s culture and survival.
Zunic Law Firm advises on the employer’s obligation under the Law on Safety and Health at Work and other legislation. This also includes protection of discrimination and protection of harrasment at workplace.
When employers are relying on background checks of job applicants and employees, Zunic Law helps to navigate legal requirements and strike the right balance between the necessary business decisions and employee privacy.
Independent Contractors and Non-Employment Engagement
Independent contractors exist in a variety of professions and industries and have a unique role in employment law with their own rules. While the term independent contractor may be well known, the benefits and risks of being an independent contractor might not be. We help companies and independent contractors understand the legal implications of their contractual relationship from the employment, contractual, and tax perspective.
