HBW » Your lawyers for labour law

The conclusion of an employment agreement is a legal transaction entered by the majority of private individuals and companies, often several times within a relatively short period. What initially appears to be a relatively simple contractual relationship based on clear outlines reveals its complexity and its numerous stumbling blocks - which often lie in details not given the proper attention - only over time, or even as the contractual relationship nears its end.



Specialists for Austrian labour law.

The Austrian labour law is an exceptionally dynamic legal area. As a result of numerous amendments of important labour laws and the development of case law in recent years, a close observation of these developments and regular involvement with current topics have become indispensable.

Ongoing training and upskilling, specialisation, and decades of practice allow us to offer competent advice on all labour issues that may arise. By collaborating with tax advisors, auditors, and other service providers of our clients, we can timely and efficiently identify the most suitable solutions to problems in connection with labour law.


Reorganisation, termination, or warning letters

arbeitsrecht hbw anwaltBe it in connection with the enforcement of justified claims or the defence against unjustified claims arising from an employment agreement, the review of employment agreement terms, expertise on possibilities of terminating employment, or the consequences of an unlawful termination – we can accompany the often far-reaching employment decisions of individuals and companies and provide out-of-court advice as well as representation in court.

Our partners and staff members specialising in labour law will deal with all labour issues facing our clients in a responsible and targeted manner. For us, it makes no difference whether the issues at hand relate to laws governing blue-collar and white-collar workers, areas of employment with particular protection against dismissal, or public employment in an authority. Our objective is to offer competent advice and support to the affected individuals and companies and their management and supervisory bodies on these (often non-strategic) issues, and to devise the best possible strategies for the implementation and enforcement of their own labour perspectives. Where labour law measures become necessary in connection with the reorganisation of companies, out-of-court corporate restructurings, or the preparation of insolvency proceedings, we can support clients in the planning and implementation of such measures.
