Given the important development of the regulation of working relationships, labour law has become an area of practice in itself, with its own legal provisions and specific courts. In particular, it includes regulations governing employment contracts, such as legal provisions related to salaries, vacation leaves, overtime hours and termination of a contract of employment. It also includes regulations related to social insurances that are applicable in regard to labour law.
It is necessary for businesses and individuals to be able to have an appropriate and satisfactory work environment. It is hence important to define the framework of such environment, in order to optimize the relationships between employers and employees. This requires the implementation of complete and precise contracts of employment, a specific oversight of social insurances issues and a detailed management of human resources.
