We represent corporate and individual clients in wide areas of employment which include those in transactional, advisory and contentious work.
Clients commonly seek our advice and assistance in the areas of developing employment handbooks, employment agreements for employees at various levels within Singapore and across jurisdictions, employee intellectual property and confidentiality agreements, share options, incentive schemes, statutory welfare and benefits, workplace harassments, outsourcing management, staff severance and retrenchment arrangements, and the transfer or integration of staff personnel arising from the sale of businesses, mergers or takeovers.
In Singapore, the Tripartite Alliance for Fair & Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP) Guidelines promote the adoption of fair, responsible and progressive employment practices so as to protect employees while supporting employers as they seek to achieve their organizational goals with human capital. In this regard, we provide calibrated advice to employers to facilitate their compliance to fair and reasonable employment practices.
On contentious matters, we help clients to resolve various types of employment disputes such as non-performance of employer and/or employee obligations, enforcing restrictive covenants and post-termination undertakings in respect to non-solicitation, non-competition and confidentiality and settling disagreements over secondment or relocation terms.
