Mr. Vasset has significant experience in massive redundancies (or alternative plans such as voluntary departure programs) for economic reasons, and assists companies in their negotiations with unions and works council and in their discussions with the labor administration. He also frequently works on the structuring of employment-related agreements in companies, as well as the hiring of, and separation from, managerial and key employees. He also has experience in employee benefit issues, including collective profit-sharing and savings plans. Furthermore, he regularly advises on employment issues linked with local and global outsourcing projects, particularly for companies in the bank and insurance sector.
