Employment And Benefit Law

Employment And Benefit Law

With over 130million people in the country and less companies or institutions to take them there is a possibility that anyone will jump at any sight of job offer flung in his face. What this means is that with the teeming population and ever increasing birth rate, the youths especially are desperate for something to do. Hence when a company dangles goody of a job in their face they are keen to take it. We accept that this is a developing country and as such there is a possibility of job shortage, what we do not however accept is the idea of being exploited for the service you have pledged to render. We do not accept the fact that people can work all day long and not be adequately paid for it. We do not accept that workers are to be treated slavishly without regards for humane conditions in the offer of employment. We do not accept any form of discrimination that could jeopardize or prejudice your interest. We are totally opposed to the idea of being sacked without due compensation.

We are not only concerned with the employees’ plight, we take to heart the possibility that employers can also be exploited. Employees sometimes do not work according to their contract terms. They sometimes don’t live up to their employment promises. We also protect the interest of the employer against any adverse action that may be taken by the employee to jeopardize the interest of the employer.

What we have stated above are real life possibilities. However, at Silk Partners, we can take the steering and navigate either of the parties through any employment storm. The team is enhanced to tackle issues relating to employment and benefit laws. The team with its vast experience helps employers to draw up employment contracts which will be beneficial to both parties. We also take protective actions to protect the interest of the parties; we also render consulting services to corporations and governments on the subject.
