Labor & Employment

from employment contracts to mandatory arbitration

We advise Austrian and foreign companies on all matters relating to individual and collective labor law. Starting with the day-to-day business of every HR manager (e.g. working hours, parental leave or vacation), through contentious employment law, such as representing employers before courts and administrative authorities (contested terminations, etc.), to the impact of labor law on your specific projects, for example concerning issues of restructuring and business transfers.

There is no labor law issue we cannot solve. Our team is looking forward to navigating you safely from the beginning to the end of employment relationships and far beyond.

Areas of specialization:

  • Preparation of employment, managing director and board of directors’ contracts
  • Representation in all labor law proceedings (e.g. court proceedings, parental leave proceedings, employment protection proceedings, arbitration proceedings, disability committee, equal treatment commission)
  • Restructuring and business transfers
  • Collective agreements
  • Works council elections
  • Request for information from the works council
  • Administrative and administrative criminal proceedings (e.g. LSD-BG, AÜG, ASchG)
  • Liability of executive bodies and employees (liability of managing directors, recourse under the Law on the Liability of Employees (DHG))
  • Remuneration (e.g. collective agreement pay grades)
  • Working hours and parenthood
  • Data protection in the employment relationship
  • Staff leasing and secondment
  • Defense against unfair employee solicitation
