Labor Law

Practice of labor law in Venezuela has become very complex given the highly protective nature of the regulations that govern labor relationships. We are proud to have a labor law department that can help guide our clients through the full spectrum of employment relations, acting as advisors in labor and union matters, negotiators in all type of employment contracts, and representing our clients before judicial and administrative authorities.

Our aim is to help our clients avoid conflicts with their employees and with the union and guild associations that represent them, but at the same time we defend vigorously and forcefully any challenges that may arise. Our attorneys have participated actively in forums, committees and other organizations dealing with the interpretation and enforcement of the Venezuelan Labor Law and other social legislation governing this matter. Our attorneys have also ample experience in the negotiation of collective labor contracts, labor and administrative proceedings, and continual assistance in this field.

As to Health and Safety at Work, which matter is closely related to labor relationships, we advise our clients on the performance of legal obligations pursuant to the provisions of the Organic Law on Prevention, Work Conditions and Environment (in Spanish, LOPCYMAT) and offer legal assistance with all procedures that may be pursued by the labor protection agency (INPSASEL for its name in Spanish).
