 Labour Law

The lawyers at the Labour Law Department of Espanha e Associados have vast professional experience in this field and sound academic qualifications.


Espanha e Associados provides legal assistance in every area of labour law, including individual labour law, collective bargaining, labour litigation and social security.


We advise on particular requests and day-to-day issues raised by our clients’ human resources departments, ranging from taking on workers to terminating employment relationships, with particular emphasis on the drafting and review of employment contracts, clarifying additional obligations such as professional training and workplace health and safety, drafting internal regulations, salary processing, analysing working time and holiday leave, disciplinary proceedings, termination of the employment relationship in its various aspects and human resources due diligences.


We seek to analyse human resources strategically in line with the specific needs of our clients, aiming to optimise training processes and remuneration procedures and retain management.


Although the work done by the Labour Law Department favours prevention, Espanha e Associados represents its clients in all employment jurisdictions in Portugal and at every phase of legal proceedings, as well as vis-à-vis administrative authorities with employment inspection powers.
