Employment and Benefits

We are Stibbe Employment and Benefits specialists

Our lawyers work in close partnership with clients helping them to achieve their strategic goals in employment and benefits.

Employment and Benefits

By the very nature of this area of law, matters can be sensitive, urgent and at times, both. In response, we act promptly and decisively providing strategic, tailored advice to our clients.

Amongst a broad spectrum of expertise, we have a special focus in complex strategic employment law issues such as executive remuneration, equal pay, flexible work solutions and restructuring issues. Litigation is also an inseparable component of our work and we act on matters relating to various employment and pensions issues. In this field we have been involved in many litigation cases against unions, groups of employees and executives.

Our experience also encompasses negotiating and drafting employment contracts, compensation and benefits schemes, collective bargaining agreements and advising on the many legal constraints of a dismissal.

As strategic employment law matters entail legal aspects beyond traditional employment law, we regularly work in close partnership with our regulatory, tax, corporate and corporate governance specialists.

On the menu to the right you will find a list of specialisms we provide both to domestic and international businesses.

European regulatory initiatives for online platforms and search engines

Short Reads - As part of the digital economy, the rise of online platforms and search engines raises all kinds of legal questions. For example, do bicycle couriers qualify as employees who are entitled to ordinary labour law protections? Or should they be considered self-employed (see our Stibbe website on this issue)? The rise of online platforms also triggers more general legal questions on the relationship between online platforms and their users. Importantly, the European Union is becoming increasingly active in this field.
