Employee Committees

Employee committees / Committee of executives’ representatives / supervisory boards

As a representative of fellow employees’ interests you hold a position of responsibility and have huge opportunity to exert influence. Persons elected to be representatives are however, often unaware of all the rights and duties that such a position entails and can often be overwhelmed by the legal requirements. The law firm WILDE BEUGER SOLMECKE advises employee representatives on how to fulfil their role emphasising the skills needed to lead negotiations with employers. We will explain the rights and duties of an employee committee and together we can develop a fair compromise agreement, which takes account of all interests.

We advise all collective organs on areas such as: company codes, employee committee constitutions and collective pay agreements. Whether out-of-court or in-court, we also provide legal advice on the following employment law matters:

  • Company – employee committee agreements
  • Employee management participation (disclosure, participation and consultation rights)
  • Alternative dispute resolution procedure
  • Negotiations on relocation allowances, redundancy and severance packages
