Employment and Labor Law

The world of employment law continues to experience flux and great change. Set against the backdrop of the global Coronavirus pandemic, employers are faced with numerous practical, legal and financial obstacles, while employees are confronted with ever-rising uncertainty. You benefit from a trusted advisor with a finger on the pulse of all the latest developments, as well as an understanding of how this plays out in the real world.

Ranked in the domestic and global legal directories, Tulchinsky’s Employment and Labor department provides reassuring advice to clients, including start-ups, global companies, VC firms, senior employees, and many more, on a raft of employment and labor law. Such clients also benefit from the added insight of department head, Michal Markovitz-Blachar, whose experience at the legal department of the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs and Social Services (formerly the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor) provides clients with a unique vantage point.

We advise clients across the board on the traditional gamut of employment agreements, employment disputes, M&A transactions, as well as placing employees on leave of absence, reduction of personnel and entitlement to financial grants. Recently, for example, we advised Orbotech on the employment aspects of its USD3.4 billion acquisition by KLA-Tencor. Other clients include Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. as well as venture capital firms, such as Sanara and Jerusalem Venture Partners.
