3 March 2020 - Le licenciement en cas de non-performance
|Synopsis:||Alors que les tribunaux du travail ont tendance à être plus stricts dans leur évaluation des « raisons réelles et sérieuses » qui sous-tendent les licenciements, le non-respect des objectifs dans le cadre d’un licenciement fondé sur la performance n'est plus nécessairement suffisant pour justifier un tel licenciement. Au cours de ce petit-déjeuner, nous ferons un point des derniers développements jurisprudentiels et nous fournirons des conseils pratiques afin de gérer le manque de performance d’un salarié et être bien préparé pour limiter les risques d’un licenciement abusif.|
|Speaker:||Cindy Arces & Jean-Michel Rosa|

17 March 2020 - Discrimination at the workplace
A general framework preventing discrimination in all aspects of the employment relationship has been enacted in Luxembourg 15 years ago. The principles are clear and well-known, but their practical implementation in the context of daily HR practices and policies is not always considered and raises numerous questions of interpretation:
These are some of the questions that we will discuss in the course of the conference, highlighting notably relevant court decisions and practical examples. We will also outline the legal exposure for both the company and the individuals in the event of discriminatory HR practices and the course of action in the event of a discrimination claim.
|Speaker:||Marielle Stévenot & Raphaël Dionis|
31 March 2020 - Practical comparison of the simplified dissolution and standard liquidation
The Luxembourg law provides for two different different options to liquidate a commercial company. On one side the standard three steps procedure and on the other side the dissolution without liquidation, also called "simplified dissolution".
This will help you to have a better understanding of the two procedures and to see which option is more suitable for your cases.
