Employment And labour Law



Impala Legal is a clear leader in employment and labour law matters having consistently and successfully advised some of the largest private employers on a variety of concerns in this area of the law.

The integration of the East African labour market presents many complex structural and frictional constraints that call for harmonisation of Labour policies, laws and programmes. East Africa is quickly catching up with the rest of Africa and the world at large, and the manner in which human resources operate is becoming increasingly complicated in its rapidly changing legal environment. Therefore it is imperative to have access to sound legal counsel when it comes to dealing with issues related to employment.

Our expertise has enabled the firm to advise the region’s and the world’s leading companies and financial institutions on their retirement benefit schemes, fund management and associated requirements. Our team is therefore able to give expertise advice on plan design and structure, corporate transactions, regulatory issues, corporate governance, employment issues, trusts and data protection.

Transactional work is central to Impala Legal’s employment and incentives practice in a variety of employment and labour issues under wide circumstances.

In contentious employment cases, Impala Legal’s Advocates appears in all employment courts, defending discrimination and dismissal claims.
