Employment

We advise both Italian employers and employees working for Italian employers on their employment and related rights. Our clients benefit from this, as we provide practical insights, based on our experience, into the differences between the Italian and English legal systems.

We advise on the full range of English and US law, contractual, statutory, tax and other employment matters. These include drafting and advising on employment-related documents, and advising on corporate governance, disputes, discrimination, whistleblowing and severance issues. We also work with clients on contractual and statutory matters such as bonuses, grievance and disciplinary procedures, staff exit strategies, post termination restrictions and golden handshakes.
