We anticipate trends in Labor Law. With the recent changes to the labor legislation, which involve aspects from outsourcing to the wide-ranging reform of more than 100 articles of the 1943 Consolidated Labor Laws, we shared our knowledge and our impressions on the labor environment and the practical effects of this change. We identify opportunities and indicate its risks allowing our Clients to make their decisions with assured confidence.
We continue to innovate by offering extrajudicial alternatives to labor dispute resolution, thereby significantly reducing labor contingencies. The moment of dismissal of an employee is sensitive and a decisive point of critical importance to prevent labor claims. Our preventive support has strongly contributed to decrease the number of labor claims faced by our Clients.
We are well-acquainted with the workplaces of our Clients and apply our experience at the Labor Courts countrywide to help Clients to operate their businesses and avoid risks. The close working relationships we have with our Clients’ Legal Departments, Human Resources and Labor Relations Teams, helps us to work together in order to obtain the best solutions and achieve favorable results in litigation proceedings.
