Termination of Employment
The employer's and employee’s duties and rights in connection with the termination of employment are largely governed by the Worker Protection and Working Environment Act. Regulations in individual and collective agreements may also influence the parties’ duties and rights. The rules for administrative procedures are complex. The consequences of procedural errors can be serious and the parties involved should seek advice from competent legal advisors. In addition, individual and collective dismissals may be traumatic for those involved, and it may thus be wise to involve objective legal expertise.
Wiersholm's employment law team provides assistance in all stages of individual and collective dismissals. We provide advice for the evaluation of the grounds for termination, dismissal, suspension, other disciplinary measures and lay-offs. We assist in the implementation of terminations etc., including information and discussion meetings and negotiations. We assist in the resolution of disputes between the parties, as both advisers and negotiators. If an employment contract is terminated amicably, we can assist with the negotiations and drafting of resignation agreements. In the event that the matter cannot be resolved amicably, we can assist by litigating in all courts of law.
