The growing actual and legal demands on the labor market are confronting both employers and employees alike with many interdisciplinary challenges. Not only in the case of corporate insolvencies do serious criminal issues accompany labor legislation. We have long-term experience in dealing with these themes and are very aware of the cooperation between the various authorities involved in such investigations; be it the public prosecutors or district attorneys, the police, financial, administrative, or customs authorities.
A broadening area of investigation also involves the control of actual or alleged “moonlighting“ or illicit employment, as well as matters of employee lending and the definition of employee contracts, as well as the working relationship between employer-employee, which also covers the area of freelance staff and the self-employed.
With the current spate of insolvencies, the criminal problematics involved in Insolvency Law itself have also become more acute. Practice has unfortunately shown that by the time criminal aspects are considered, it is often too late. This is why we offer our clients precautionary advice in order to avert possible criminal hazards and minimize risk. Our activites range from consulting in times of crisis up to defense in legal proceedings.
We hereby pursue an integrated approach to resolving such problems through negotiation with investigative, administrative and customs authorities, as well as with relevant third-party decision-makers (e.g. pension providers), in order to achieve appropriate and economically viable solutions for our clients.
