Services and the liberal professions
Work is part and parcel of social life and of the personal fulfilment of every individual. The same applies to relations between employees and employers, between self-employed operators and their clients and between civil servants and the government agencies that appoint them. It is in these vital areas that numerous legal problems and disputes can and do occur.
Of course, it’s not always about money. It can also involve issues connected with the formation and termination of partnerships, welfare and safety, psychosocial stress and harassment, absences from work, responsibility and liability (under civil and criminal law).
Social security is an intrinsic part of all types of work and depends on the status of the individual concerned (employee, self-employed operator or civil servant), in particular with regard to his work disability (resulting from illness or accident) and his pension.
The professions have changed and have been converted into fully-fledged companies that are exposed to the risks of economic activity. Since 1 May 2018, the members of the professions can also be declared bankrupt. However, they can also make use of the same protection mechanisms that previously existed only for commercial operators. The law offers various possibilities that can be adapted to each specific situation.
GSJ draw on their long-standing and extensive knowledge and expertise to advise, support and, if necessary, defend their clients.
