For over 20 years, the Republic of Panama has had a detailed and sophisticated Labor Code which, together with an array of additional laws and decrees, regulates labor relations in our country. The highly technical nature of this issue makes it imperative that any employer counts with the professional and competent advice of experienced attorneys versed in this area of the law.
Our laws are designed to balance the employer-employee relationship by way of providing for the rights to strike, to form and join unions, and to conduct collective bargaining agreements, among others. All these provisions and mechanisms seek to create a fair and balanced growth in the activities undertaken by the private sector, which is the primary engine of our social and economic development.
