Legal consultancy for employers from the first day of an individual’s employment is vital in light of the instructions of the law, which currently leave managers exposed more than ever before to legal claims, fines and sanctions.
Labor & Employment Litigation
These days, employers are more exposed than ever to claims by employees and by authorities for levies, fines, indictments or financial sanctions. We guide our clients on implementing the many changes required due to legislation and rulings in recent years, which currently set a high and stringent threshold for employers in Israel.
Our firm represents clients in all legal proceedings before various judicial instances, as well as in mediation and arbitration processes. The department’s team is highly skilled in significantly minimizing the employer’s exposure. Where necessary, we represent our clients in administrative and criminal investigations, providing consultancy and representation for Ministry of Economy and Population Authority indictments conducted in Regional and National Labor Courts.
Our familiarity with the unique aspects of Israeli labor laws and the extensive skillfulness we gained in this domain have brought about significant successes in legal proceeding in labor law courts for both us and our clients, such as: deletion of indictments submitted against employers charged with unlawful employment, and precedent setting rulings in the field of labor law.
