Employee-related matters

Employee-related matters are not limited to those emerging from employment relationships (based on  employment agreements). They also pertain to other issues linked to labour law or even to ongoing consulting (e.g. in due keeping employee records). It is worth keeping in mind, that employee-related matters also include those emerging from civil law relationships – based on contracts for a specific work or mandate contracts.

Verification of employment agreements

Appropriate wording of an employment agreement is crucial for precise determination of mutual obligations of the parties in employment relationship. An employment agreement that is found non-compliant with the provisions of labour law may entail the employer being held liable for damages to the benefit of the employee, be deemed offence or even crime. Therefore, for your convenience we draft employment agreements, including agreements for members of managing boards of companies. We also verify the already concluded agreement and prepare the documents required for a valid conclusion of an employment relationship.

Analysis of permittance of concluding mandate contracts and contracts for a specific work

In some cases it is to the mutual benefit of the employer and the employee to conclude a civil law contract instead of an employment agreement. Taking into due consideration the rigors imposed by the Labour Code, we will assess if a civil law contract is permissible in a specific case. Then if it is – what should its wording be like.
