Labour & Employment
The Phuoc & Partners Labour and Employment Practice strive for excellence in client service. For more than 10 years, our lawyers have helped clients navigate the ever-changing landscape of Vietnamese laws that govern the workplace.
We help our clients obtain the services they need to effectively manage complex and ever-changing legal, compliance and human resources challenges. ►
Vietnam-based companies and companies with operations in Vietnam frequently require quick answers and solutions to complicated Vietnam labour law issues. To meet this need, Phuoc & Partners has assembled a team of our lawyers whose day-to-day practice is devoted solely to advising on labour, employment and benefits matters.
Our team consists of lawyers based in our Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Da Nang offices who collectively have decades of experience with the nuances of Vietnamese labour law. These lawyers provide advice on a full range of employment issues and represent employers in Government proceedings, litigation and corporate transactions. This team is well-versed in Vietnam's unique approaches to personnel issues, and how its quirky labour law sections can sit quietly as traps for the unwary, snaring corporations that do business in Vietnam.
We partner with our clients to quickly and successfully address the day-to-day human resources and employment law issues that arise with respect to their Vietnam job applicants, employees and former employees. We can provide such legal advice under a monthly retainer agreement, fixed fee or regular hourly rate billing depending on the selection of our clients. Key specialty areas include:
a. Policy and compliance audits
b. Policy, agreement and plan drafting
c. Process toolkits
d. Workforce change
e. Corporate transactions
f. Investigations, audits and claims with Vietnamese Governmental agencies
g. Vietnam employment health check review
h. Vietnam employment due diligence
a. Work permit
Foreigners working in Vietnam generally have to obtain work permits except for some exemption cases. Our services are to advise and prepare application to obtain work permits for our clients' expatriates and obtain ruling to be exempted from work permits.
b. Visa and resident card services
We team with our clients to manage inbound business and working visa applications, resident card applications, and large-scale movement of personnel. Our lawyers counsel our clients regularly on the most expeditious and productive methods to move facilitate the entry of expatriates into Vietnam.
When our clients are sued by current or former employees or in case our clients want to sue their current or former employees, we partner with our clients to achieve results most efficiently. In big-case litigation, we bring to bear State-of-the-art technology for document management and overall case control. For smaller cases, our reservoir of rapidly accessible research maximizes our ability to handle cases effectively. ►
Stressing excellence, we strive to:
Phuoc & Partners Resources Workplace Training offers highly interactive training programs that translate business and labour law standards into practical guidelines for participants. ►
We provide training and education on a variety of employment-related topics and can assist clients with a broad range of employee, supervisor and executive training issues and personnel management.
Our training programs, led by experienced lawyers and dynamic trainers, provide supervisors, managers and human resource professionals the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to the challenges that govern their daily workplace.
We believe that all participants from the mailroom to the boardroom need to be engaged and active in the learning process. Therefore, our training sessions are not focused exclusively on the legal issues at hand, but instead are participant-targeted and incorporate interesting and creative exercises, hypothetical scenarios and case studies. We engage participants through user-friendly and memorable "take-aways" and materials. Our sessions are conducted by seasoned, professional trainers who are also experts in their fields.
We routinely receive comments such as "this is the best training we have ever had" from training participants. You can learn more about our legal training service at: http://phuoc-partners.com/news/legal-training-803.html.
