Why and how can we help you?

Labour law and social security law. A maze through which only the most experienced guides can guide you safely. That is why we at MPLOY specialize solely on this field. Our lawyers regularly give trainings and courses, and speak at seminars  on different relevant social law topics.

 

 

For employers

Every employer has the right to the best advice, because working with employees is a delicate game of rights and obligations.

-        We provide advice and draw up the necessary documents (labour contracts, internal labour regulations, policies,…).

-        We negotiate with unions and employees.

-        We argue your case in court.

-        We carry out social audits.

-        We provide guidance during inspections.

-        We provide assistance and advice concerning collective labour relations (drawing up and negotiating collective labour agreements, restructurings, consultative bodies).

 

For employees

As an employee, you are entitled to specialised advice when you want your employer to treat you correctly. 

-        We offer you independent advice concerning dismissal schemes, supplementary pensions, harassment (bullying) at work, discrimination, etc…

-        If needed, we argue your case in court.

 

People benefitting from social insurance

Social security regulations become more complicated every day. The (financial) stakes are often quite high.

-        If you have any questions regarding your pension, unemployment benefits, medical insurance, labour accident, etc., you can turn to us for answers.

-        We are used to unravelling the most complex situations, and shed light on them.

-        The social security bodies are no strangers to us. We support you during any disputes with these bodies, even in court if need be.

Social security

If you ever have a dispute with the National Social Security Office (NSSO), it’s very important to be well-prepared. The stakes are usually very high, since the NSSO is allowed to not only claim the actual social security contributions which were not paid, but also contribution mark-ups and interests. On top of that, the NSSO can go back at least three years.Read more

Dismissal

Every day, we handle dismissal cases. Which notice needs to be given, what severance package needs to be paid? Were the formalities of the dismissal respected? What about outplacement? How can one determine whether there are grounds for dismissal for cause, and what are the time limits that need to be taken into account? Can an employer unilaterally change the employment conditions, and what are the consequences if he does?Read more
