Labour & Employment
"I like work; it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours."
Jerome K. Jerome.
With automation and AI penetrating the labour market in the Industry 4.0 era, labour market is transforming as we speak. It is more important than ever to keep it human-centric, and law has an important role to play in the process.
We are repeatedly called upon by colleagues and clients to assist them in their employment-related challenges on a daily basis. This is due to our contextual and historic understanding of CEE labour market, on the one hand and our outstanding knowledge of the latest trends in the national and EU regulation and evolving court practice in the field. We handle the trivia but also advise our clients on in-depth, cross-disciplinary issues such as the digitisation of HR management, labour force outsourcing and hire, posted workers' issues, labour-specific data protection and profiling, Acquired Rights Directive challenges, remote work, non-discrimination, and so on.
We install trademark protection measures concerning labour relationships in a robust manner to hold in court in case of a dispute. We have a profound knowledge of the civil law aspects of non-solicit and non-compete clauses' implementation. We consult and implement blue-card programmes and are actively involved in numerous litigation and settlement procedures in contentious labour-related matters.
Our labour and employment practice is well-known for providing corporate clients with the necessary scalability and creating a robust foundation for the client's operations and the realities of a post-COVID world. Our labour advice spans the aviation, financial and insurance services, professional outsourcing and data broker industries and we provide ongoing labour advice to large retail chains.
We are the referral hub for large international law firms on labour-related issues in Bulgaria.
