In response to labor disputes, our Group renders expert legal advisory services by actively participating in negotiations and engaging in defense activities by representing the client in various procedures before the Labor Commission and courts.

In the past, corporations were predominantly faced with individual labor relations issues such as simple correctional measures, unemployment and related matters. However, recent developments in the field of labor relations and industrial accidents, including the reinforced regulation through the enactment of special bylaws, the reconstitution of ordinary wages law and the restructuring of retirement wage policy, the implementation of performance budget wage system, the need to determine legality of intra-company subcontractor laborers and non-regular workers, short-term and long-term maintenance of poor-performers, increased need for pre-vetting of collective agreements and employment agreements, maintenance of multiple labor unions and the reinforcement of penalties for unfair labor has given rise to numerous issues and conflicts which has made active company restructuring and a priori control a necessity for stable corporate management.

Our Group has the highest expertise and capability to deal with any labor related issues including individual or collective labor relations that may arise within a company, and we work closely with clients to reach collaborative solutions.
