What are your top tips for navigating the employment regime and what potential sticking points would you highlight?

Answer ... When hiring or establishing an employment relationship, the employer should take account of different considerations, including the applicable laws and regulations and potentially any applicable collective agreements.

The employer should also consider the specific requirements and rules governing the employment of foreign workers, including any prior approvals and work or residence permits that may be necessary.

When determining the terms and conditions of an employment contract, the parties and particularly the employer should pay attention to the mandatory provisions of the law and the minimum rights granted to the employee by law, such as maximum working hours and termination rights. Non-compliance with the applicable rules could subject the employer to sanctions as stipulated by the law.

In any case, it is always recommended that the advice of local legal counsel be sought in developing internal HR regulations and drafting model employment contracts.
