Social protection law
A somewhat unknown field of activity, social protection law has seen rapid development in recent years, particularly since 2016 with the compulsory nature of health coverage schemes (mutual insurance), but also the strong development of collective bargaining at branch and company level in the area of welfare schemes in the broad sense (disability, death, education allowances, etc.).
This branch of law also covers compulsory supplementary pensions and supplementary pension contracts, which have been constantly revised in recent years.
In view of the specialisations of the firm’s lawyers, we can assist you in the management of these files, which generally have a strong social impact on staff.
