Labor and employment relationships between employers and employees is covered under our labor and social security laws and regulations. When it comes to HR, these processes require external support from a group of trained professionals.
AVL has a team of lawyers committed to providing quality service thanks to their thorough understanding of the employer’s line of business or the employees’ needs. This team provides on-going support for decision-making by senior management, human talent managers and business owners. We have developed legal tools on matters of labor and employment that put us at the forefront of the labor market.
We advise companies on personnel selection, internal discipline management rules, reviewing the organization’s labor policy and culture, administrative procedures with the Ministry of Labor and the Ecuadorian Institute of Social Security (IESS), negotiation, and litigations, all of which are moving parts that are key to any employment relationship. It is also necessary to determine in what cases the criteria for labor exclusion have been met.
