Corporate law is designed to govern the legal status of a company, its incorporation procedures and business activities, while also regulating the development and implementation of the system of intra-corporate relations.
Today, corporate law is practically a separate branch of legislation, incorporating a vast number of special and conflicting rules. Corporate law solutions therefore require special knowledge and experience. The Deloitte CIS Legal group has been developing a dedicated service line, dealing exclusively with corporate and labor law issues, while regularly studying innovations and changes in corporate law and speaking at conferences and round tables aimed at solving practical issues.
Certain issues revolving around a company’s day-to-day activities (such as recruitment, the execution of labor contracts, drafting employment orders, filling in labor books, observance of the vacation schedule, temporary disability issues, secondments, payroll, and layoffs) demand strict compliance with the current legislation. This requires a clear understanding of labor law requirements and the associated risks in cases of non-compliance.
