Workplace law advisers, with you every step of the way.
We support businesses across the globe in relation to all the 'people' issues that they face, from hiring, to assisting in change programmes, to managing and resolving disputes where they arise.
In today’s global economy all international businesses need advice that offers integrated solutions to their global employment issues, particularly when working across jurisdictions and juggling different regulatory requirements.
Clyde & Co’s team are recognised leaders in the delivery of HR legal services. Our experienced practices in the UK, the Middle East, across Asia-Pacific and in Brazil have a long track record of advising both local and international businesses on employment issues, employee benefits, pensions, immigration, partnership, and trade union issues.
In jurisdictions where we do not have a local presence, we have strong relationships with leading employment law practices through our partnership with L&E Global, which enables us to offer seamless integrated solutions in an international marketplace.
From hiring, to managing change programmes, and resolving disputes, the combination of our experienced and sizeable international team and network of international offices means that we provide clients with relevant and tailored employment advice when and where it is needed.
It is unsurprising that the recent upturn in the economy following years of stagnation is fuelling an increase in disputes between unions and employers.
We work with employers across a number of different sectors in relation to their trade union relationships. Our in-depth understanding of trade unions, together with the importance of good relationships with unions, places us in the unique position of being able to advise our clients how to manage and improve their relationships with their unions. We can help them to avoid discussions and any disagreements turning into full scale disputes. Where disputes do occur, we are experienced in assisting in the resolution of those disputes.
We regularly advise clients on a full range of trade union related matters, including:
Trade union recognition, and drawing up recognition and collective bargaining agreements
Advising on improving relations with trade unions, managing the relationship, and assisting in negotiations
Assisting in relation to the management of any disputes which occur, and resolving those disputes
Managing collective consultation, whether in relation to TUPE or in relation to collective redundancies
