Labour law, while used interchangeably with employment law, is very different. The Labour Law relationship is tripartite, i.e., it involves the employer, employee and trade unions. This relationship, referred to as industrial relations is extremely difficult to manage and is a legal minefield.
Labor laws grant employees in certain sectors the right to unionize and allow employers and employees to engage in certain workplace-related activities (for example, strikes and lockouts) in order to further their demands for changes in the employer-employee relationship.
Due to the fact that employers are at a disadvantage in this area, there is an added focus to protect employers. As a result, we only represent employers on labour law and industrial relations issues.
