Vertragsfragen und Vereinbarungen mit Führungskräften

Von Arbeitsverträgen bis zu Vorstands- und Geschäftsführerverträgen, von Kündigungsverfahren bis zu Betriebsverlagerungen: Unser Team erstellt zusammen mit Ihnen die optimalen Verträge für Ihre Geschäftsbeziehungen. Geht es um die Besetzung von Spitzenpositionen im In- oder Ausland, um den Entwurf oder die Überprüfung von Arbeitsverträgen in Übereinstimmung mit lokalen Rechtsvorschriften, um die Beurteilung von Verträgen in Restrukturierungsprozessen: Unsere Fachkenntnisse ermöglichen Ihnen effektive und auf Ihre Bedürfnisse zugeschnittene Lösungen.


Arbeitsrechtliche Prozessführung und Verwaltungsverfahren

In arbeitsrechtlichen Angelegenheiten können Prozessführung und Schlichtung äußerst heikel sein und erfordern ganz spezielle Expertise. Mit unserer Hilfe können Sie die entsprechenden Risiken sicher einschätzen und steuern. Unser Team ist bei neuen oder geplanten Veränderungen arbeitsrechtlicher Vorschriften in CEE/SEE stets auf dem neuesten Stand und kann Ihnen gezielt strategische Beratung beim Entwurf von Rechtsdokumenten oder der Vorbereitung auf Verhandlungen mit Betriebsräten und Gewerkschaften bieten.


Pensionen und andere Leistungen

Wir sind Experten in den Bereichen Aktienoptionspläne, Pensionsfondsverträge und Nebenleistungen. Bei der Ausarbeitung länderübergreifender Beteiligungspläne für Führungskräfte, der Vorstandsbestellung von Mitarbeitern und der Umsetzung langfristiger Incentive-Pläne in Tochtergesellschaften der CEE/SEE-Region mit minimalen Auswirkungen auf Unternehmensstrukturen können Sie auf uns als einen verlässlichen Partner zählen. Gemeinsam mit dem Steuerrechtsteam von Wolf Theiss beraten wir auch bei steuerrechtlichen Fragen von Mitarbeiterbeteiligungen, Entgeltumwandlungsplänen und anderen Strategien zur Steueroptimierung.


Restrukturierungen und Outsourcing

Entscheiden unsere Klienten sich für Outsourcing, Offshoring, Restrukturierung, Abbauprozesse oder Zusammenschlüsse, dann bietet unser Team die notwendigen Orientierungshilfen. Wir sind insbesondere mit den Schwierigkeiten von Outsourcing-Prozessen vertraut und entwickeln Strategien zur Vermeidung unerwünschter Konsequenzen. Durch unsere praktische Erfahrung in 13 Ländern können wir unseren Klienten lokale Marktkenntnisse bieten, um sie optimal in ihren spezifischen Branchen zu positionieren.


Umsetzung von organisatorischen Veränderungen

Bei organisatorischen Veränderungen bringt unsere Präsenz in 13 Ländern Mittel-, Ost- und Südosteuropas einen klaren Mehrwert für unsere Klienten. So gehört es oft zu unseren Aufträgen, die Einrichtung von Teilzeitmodellen, Vergütungsstrukturen und Überstundenmodellen parallel in mehreren Ländern zu unterstützen. Durch die Zusammenarbeit unserer Spezialistenteams können wir unsere Klienten zusammen mit Experten im Gesellschafts- und Öffentlichen Wirtschaftsrecht, Steuerrecht und in der Streitschlichtung rasch und effizient bei grenzüberschreitenden Beschäftigungsprojekten beraten.


Laufendes Beschäftigungsmanagement

Ob es um kollektives Arbeitsrecht oder Arbeitszeiten geht, Sozialversicherung oder direkte Vertretung: Wir unterstützen unsere Klienten bei der Durchführung ihrer täglichen Geschäfte. Die Zusammenarbeit unserer Expertengruppen erlaubt umfassende Beratung in arbeitsrechtlichen Fragen unter Berücksichtigung branchenspezifischer Rahmenbedingungen wie etwa datenschutzrechtliche oder bankenrechtliche Vorschriften. Zudem halten wir unsere Klienten über Veränderungen im Pensionsrecht und anderen arbeitsrechtlichen Fragen in den für sie relevanten Ländern auf dem Laufenden.
