Employment Litigation

When it turns sour

When it turns sour

Like any other relationships, the breakdown of the employer and employee relationship can become bitter and acrimonious.

When this happens, it is vital that a business moves quickly and takes appropriate measures to protect its confidential information and trade secrets and minimise the disruption to business operations when key employees leave.

Conversely, if you are an employee, you should be mindful of your rights and obligations under the terms of your employment agreement and the Employment Ordinance to ensure your entitlements and avoid any allegations of wrongdoing.

Our litigation team is experienced in advising clients on a wide range of contentious employment matters. We have acted for both employers and employees and understand their concerns and needs from both perspectives. We provide clients with practical and costs effective strategies for every stage, from the moment when the breakdown in relationship becomes apparent to termination procedures, investigations and legal proceedings.

Our areas of work include:

  • Severance claims
  • Discrimination and harassment claims
  • Employment and labour litigation and arbitration
  • Investigations of workplace issues and allegations
  • Redundancies and dismissals
  • Executive compensation arrangements
