The Employment team has extensive experience in advising companies and/or their managers before the French courts and administrative authorities (including the Defender of Rights – Défenseur des Droits) in connection with sensitive, individual or collective proceedings involving:
- Employment law (transfers of employees, termination of employment contracts, international mobility, collective bargaining, employee saving schemes and shareownership, elections of employee representative, trade union law, etc.);
- Social security law (social security contributions liability and recovery, work accidents and injuries, gross negligence, etc.);
- Criminal liability employment law (offence of hindering trade union activities, undeclared work, discrimination and harassment, health and safety, etc.).
With their high-profile judicial practice developed for prestigious and sophisticated clients, the Employment team’s lawyers have demonstrated unique technical and procedural expertise in numerous iconic and highly-publicized cases, notably in relation to complex restructurings (compliance with consultative procedures, validity of job protection plans, expert investigations, employee representatives’ emergency notification procedure, etc.)
The lawyers bring together multi-disciplinary litigation teams, notably including lawyers from the firm’s tax, commercial, corporate and restructuring departments in order to anticipate and tailor their practice to unprecedented litigation subject-matters (co-employment, tort liability within company groups, status of workers on digital platforms,..) which often involve legal concepts from other areas of law (fraud, abuse of law, economic dependency, transfer pricing, etc.).
