Employment laws and pensions
Bull assists companies with HR and employment law issues, both in the private and public sectors – and we assist individuals. We also have significant experience assisting Norwegian and international companies who recuit employees from other countries.
Employment law can be challenging to deal with on your own. Our experience is that solid legal advice saves the employer and employee time, expenses, legal proceedings, unrest in the workplace, and negative attention.
Our lawyers focus on finding good solutions for all parties, with the lowest possible level of conflict. We know our clients well and contribute to quick clarification of the issues. Most of our clients are employers, but we also assist employees, and we believe this makes us better advisers. Our lawyers regularly offer courses in employment law issues, and internal courses for companies.
We can assist with:
- Employment agreements
- Collective agreements
- Incentive and bonus schemes
- Handling whistle-blower cases, disputes, and notification services
- Changes in working conditions, restructuring, and downsizing
- Terminations and final agreement negotiations
- Non-compete clauses, advice and disputes about unfair competition from employees
- Management of long-term sick leave
- Staffing solutions
- International working conditions and wages and working conditions for Norwegian and foreign workers
- Privacy in working life, control measures and access to e-mail, in collaboration with our privacy team
- Integration processes and employment law due diligence in connection with transactions, mergers and acquisitions, in collaboration with our company law and transactions team
- Pension law advice
- Mediation and dispute resolution before the courts
