In the context of Nepal, this branch of law is unique and has some sui generic features. The trade unions are strong and influential in the employment affairs. Further, the courts and employment regulators are more conservative when it comes to labor related issues and tend to take socialist approach and rule in favour of the employees.
In the employment affairs drafting employment rules, policies and contracts, the process of hiring and firing and grievance handling are some of the crucial areas. Special attention is required in hiring and firing of the employees in order to comply with the local laws and procedures. Balance between the law and the local employment practice is also desirable in drafting the employment rules, policies, employment contracts, in order to maintain smooth employment relationship. Experience hands are required to properly guide on the employment related disputes including the process of collective bargaining.
