Belgium is known for having one of the most protective labour law legislations in Europe, mostly in favour of the employee. As an employer, you cannot therefore risk making a mistake, bearing in mind it could cost you serious indemnity. The employment law team of Kocks & Partners works preventively as well as repressively, from advising you how to handle a certain situation to working out together necessary action and defending this action before the court.
Belgian labour law is, however, often a labyrinth of rules, set out by case-law decisions where the influence of trade unions is inevitable. Kocks & Partners can show you the right way in Belgium when it comes to individual cases or measures where trade unions need to be involved, such as mass redundancies.
