Employment

We act for both employers and individuals, which allows us to advise clients falling in either of these categories with a wider perspective. We have considerable experience dealing with employment disputes in the Singapore Courts, and a comprehensive knowledge of the issues that employers of all types of corporate structures (from listed companies to limited liability partnerships to owner managed businesses) are likely to face.

Services

  • Business Reorganisations
    Redundancy programmes, changing terms and conditions of employment, and transfer of employment.
  • Business Immigration
    In Singapore, the rules on business immigration and foreign workers are strict, with serious penalties and ramifications for those who fail to comply. We can work with individuals and companies on a variety of employment related immigration issues focusing on the international relocation of personnel both from and into Singapore.
  • Corporate Support
    Employment aspects of acquisitions and disposals (both share and business transactions), including due diligence and related reports.
  • Employee Relations Issues
    Disciplinary, dismissal and grievance procedures, settlement negotiations and severance agreements
  • Employment Law Training
    Employment law in Singapore will see many changes in 2017 and beyond, and keeping up with the changes can be a real challenge. We can provide training for managers, human resource professionals and in-house lawyers to keep you up to date on changes in law and best practices to avoid legal problems in the workplace.
  • Litigation Assistance
    Before the relevant labour authorities, labour courts and other courts, from termination and bonus claims, to protecting trade secrets, confidential information and business interests.
  • Policies, procedures and contractual documentation
    Service agreements, employment contracts, secondment arrangements and employee handbooks, for all categories of staff, including directors and senior executives.

All of our training is practical, interactive, accessible and engaging, and can be tailored to your interests and the requirements of your business.
