Employment Law & Immigration.
Digitalisation may entail major processes of change and restructuring of companies, and thus the employment landscape expects new legal implications.
At the same time, as both employers and workers look for more flexible ways to work, digital labour platforms (crowdemployment) are fastly developing.
We assist both employers and employees/ freelancers in connection to both traditional employment law aspects, as well as on the new developments in the field, so as to address the transition in-between.
We also assist both employers and foreign employees/ potential employees on aspects related to immigration, employment in Romania, as well as on any matters related to immigrants’ entrance, stay and exit from Romania.
