We offer help with questions and problems concerning the private employment contract law. We are responsible for labour law questions when your place of work is located in the Canton of Basel-Stadt.
We give advice over the phone or during a personal counselling session; this includes individual employment contracts, collective employment contracts and standard employment contracts (e.g. domestic staff).
