Our Employment lawyers advise their clients on implementing the various strategies that make it possible to reconcile the necessary compliance with employment legislation and the confidentiality inherent to this type of operation.
Clients include transferor or transferee parties, as well as the potential purchasers of insolvent companies.
We carry out due diligence audits on target companies, in particular to check that the target company complies with current employment law, to determine the target company's obligations and undertakings towards its personnel, and to assess the target company's potential exposure to employment law-related risks.
To offer comprehensive advice to our clients, we draw on our extensive expertise on the impact that privatisations or IPOs may have on employment.
Our lawyers analyse the collective status in place in the companies concerned by the operation and its predictable consequences: applicable collective agreements and other agreements, particularly in terms of working time, staff representation structure, remuneration policies, profit-sharing agreements, retirement benefits and more.
We advise our clients on the implementation of the prior information and consultation procedure with the target company's staff representative bodies and help prepare the documentation required for the purpose, as well as on the management of litigation that is likely to occur with the staff or their representatives.
Finally, our team is also on-hand to harmonise the collective statuses applicable to staff members, depending on their original employer.
