Employment law | Alien law | Occupational pensions
With today's new work models and growing assignments abroad, companies need to ensure that the right agreements are in place with their employees. There are also various local and international rules and requirements to consider. BDO offers comprehensive services for HR professionals, covering legal aspects as well as social security and payroll services.
We advise companies on all aspects of employment law. Are you looking for support drafting employment agreements for employees and leadership, preparing employment regulations or ensuring compliance with minimum wage requirements? We can help you with all this, as well as corporate transactions, operational reorganisations, mass redundancies and equity-based compensation schemes.
We also represent clients before tripartite committees on sanctions following labour market inspections, but not before state courts in disputes under employment law.
We advise public sector organisations and public service companies on all general public employment law questions as well as on privatisation or nationalisation.
Our specialists advise on the many relevant aspects to be considered by Swiss companies that recruit employees from abroad or foreign companies that provide services in Switzerland. We help you obtain work and residence permits for individuals or groups, and also check your compliance with minimum wage requirements.
Our professionals also support you in developing a consistent corporate policy to govern specialist project assignments abroad or international development placements for high potential employees.
Social security schemes
We support occupational pension funds during mergers, asset transfers and partial liquidations, advising on all pension-related aspects (regulations, benefits).
