There are a large number of rules and provisions concerning employment, which may result in a variety of legal disputes and interpretation issues between the employer and the employee. The most common labour law cases that lawyers deal with, which are settled in court, include matters related to the end of employment, i.e. the legality of termination or cancellation of an employment contract.
Our law firm provides legal advice to the members of YTK, the largest unemployment fund in Finland. This means that we deal with labour law issues on a daily basis. A simple enquiry is often enough to solve a problem concerning labour law, but in more complicated cases – such as an unjustified termination of employment or an unfounded claim by an employee – it may be necessary to go to court. In this case, it is strongly recommended to make sure that the lawyer has extensive experience in labour law.
