Employment law is one of the most rapidly changing areas of our law. Against a backdrop of new legislation, regulations and reported cases, maintaining best practice is a real challenge. What’s more with ever increasing awards from courts and tribunals, disputes are not only disruptive, they can also be costly. It is this combination – impacting on performance and profit – that makes employment law a key business issue and an area in which risk can be minimised by taking specialist legal advice at an early stage.

Our Corporate Employment & Labour Law Practice, headed by Partner Anastasios Triantafyllos, is well established nationally and focuses on both the public and private sector. Our comprehensive services fall into three areas: the preparation of the right documentation; advice on individual issues and disputes; and representation at tribunals and courts. We also provide individually tailored in-house training and seminars covering all aspects of employment law. We prepare all types of terms and conditions of employment, contracts and service agreements – tailored to meet your specific needs. Furthermore we prepare employment policies, procedures and company handbooks which reflect the particular requirements of your business and the industry in which it operates.

Our Corporate Employment & Labour Law Practice advises on wide-ranging employment issues relating to large-scale restructurings, mergers and acquisitions, redundancies, business transfers and collective disputes and the establishment of employee benefits and incentives. We represent clients through all phases and types of employment litigation, ranging from individual charges and cases to broad-scale class and collective actions. Our lawyers defend claims of employment discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful discharge, wage and hour violations, entitlement to employee benefits, misappropriation of trade secrets and confidential information, unfair competition, labour-management disputes, defamation and other employment-related torts. In general, our expertise extends to advising and representing clients in the following disputes: unfair dismissals; unfair labour practices; organisational rights; collective agreements; strikes; non-payment of wages, overtime, leave and severance pay; class actions; employment discrimination; restrictive covenants / trade secrets; wage and hour; wrongful termination claims; non competition and confidentiality agreements.

With regard to compliance issues, we strive to ensure that litigation concerns do not distract from the goal of retaining good employees and improving or terminating poor employees. We assist clients in creating strategies that help achieve this goal without costly litigation. Our employment counselling services include: advice on workforce reductions and related issues; wage-and-hour compliance under Greek Law and EU regulations; workplace privacy issues, including evolving data privacy laws; investigating and responding to complaints of discrimination and averting; retaliation claims; severance agreements; performing employment law compliance surveys.

Furthermore we are able to advise clients and give opinions on a wide range of non-litigious employment law matters and commercial matters with employment law implications.
