Labour law / Human resources

Chesneau Fischel assists employers in the management of their company’s human resources and in their relations with trade unions and staff representative bodies.

The lawyers draft the various deeds relating to individual labour relations, constantly seeking to reconcile the company’s economic imperatives with the necessary protection of employees. Chesneau Fischel also guides company directors in setting up and consulting staff representative bodies when the company reaches key milestones in its development (opening new establishments, forming subsidiaries, restructuring, layoffs, disposals, transfers of business).
