Employee participation law (Works Councils Act)
Unger Nolet Lawyers are specialized in employee participation law. We advise works councils and directors in various sectors, both in the private sector and in social organizations and the government. Works councils regard us as expert sparring partners. Managing directors get us involved because of our years of experience and clarity in advice in structuring employee participation.
An enduring relationship between the director and the works council is essential for an organisation to work smoothly. Maintaining this relationship requires strategic assessment when invoking rights from the WOR (Work Councils Act) or the WMS (Act on Employee Participation at Schools). Aiming for agreement is our starting point, but sometimes it is necessary to take a stand. In those cases we provide assistance in proceedings before the Enterprise Chamber of the Court of Appeal, the Cantonal Court or the wages council.
Throughout the year we give many presentations about current developments in the field of employee participation and to deepen insight into specific themes. Thus you can meet us in seminars, thematic conferences, fairs and congresses. You can also call us in to provide a tailor-made in-house seminar or training.
