For an advanced introduction to labour laws of Pakistan
We provide following legal services in the domain of employment laws:
Employment contract is the primary document in the employment law and is of utmost importance. We draft and review the employment contract to ensure that it is in accordance with local laws and provides maximum protection to our client. When the client tends to avoid establishing formal employment relationship, we make sure that the contract is drafted appropriately to achieve this to the maximum extent permisible in law.
Modern corporations heavily rely on their internal employment policies. We ensure that such policies are not in violation of any statutory provisions and are also practical given the specific working conditions and local practices. We have drafted or reviewed employment policies of various renowned multinational corporations.
Advising on Compliance and Legal Issues
Since employment laws of Pakistan are scattered across various statutes and may vary from province to province, therefore, ensuring compliance with all applicable laws can become tricky at times. We routinely provide advice on compliance and other legal issues relating to employees of all levels including CEOs and directors.
