HR Law

HR law is all about people – and of course all the associated legal questions and concerns that arise on a day-to-day basis. Working conditions, redundancy, training, equal opportunity recruitment, pensions, social security, taxation – the provisions of EU and national law reach into every corner of a company’s operations.

HR law is at the centre of rapid responses to changes in the business climate: 

  • opening and closing subsidiaries, 
  • new collective bargaining agreements, 
  • individual dismissals and collective redundancies, 
  • executive compensation reviews,
  • increasing international mobility. 

Companies’ strategic people decisions are subject to legislation in multiple jurisdictions within Europe and beyond, each with its own unique body of HR law and directives which must be respected.

PwC can help you manage all these issues and provide insight and support so that the decisions you make have the desired outcome: a more efficient organisation, a well structured workforce and proactive management of all the associated regulatory affairs.

Employment law

Ensuring compliance with employment legislation is an ever-growing challenge for organisations. Companies must act quickly to adapt to the new regulations and cases that regularly alter the legal landscape.
