Rowan Legal

Our Labor Law specialization at ROWAN LEGAL is developing dynamically. Over recent years, the office has become a recommended office in the Law Firm of the Year rankings for labor law.

Within the field of labor law, we provide comprehensive legal advice primarily to employers and managers, both in the form of preparation of labor law documentation and legal assessments, as well as through representation before the courts or administrative authorities.

In connection with international labor mobility, support in the field of immigration law is also an integral part of our services, especially in ensuring all legal formalities for the residence and/or performance of work by foreign citizens and their family members in the Czech Republic.

During consulting, we take into account the overlaps with other legal specializations and work closely with colleagues, especially in the field of personal data protection, IT law, copyright protection, taxes and social security law.

How we can help:

  • Drafting and assessment of employment, management and other contracts and their automation.
  • Preparation and revision of work regulations and internal regulations of the employer.
  • Advice on terminating employment relationships, including aspects of collective redundancies.
  • Setting up relationships with employment agencies or business individuals (risk prevention related to the so-called Schwartz system).
  • Advice on the prohibition of competition in labor relations.
  • Electronic labor law negotiations.
  • Advice on employee compensation programs and share purchase options.
  • Assessment of the transfer of rights and obligations from employment relationships.
  • Representation in labor law disputes and in administrative proceedings (administrative proceedings under the Labor Inspection Act).
  • Posting of employees from/to the Czech Republic and obtaining residence titles needed for residence and work in the Czech Republic.
