Labor and Immigration Law

Labor Law

The Republic of Panama has had a detailed and sophisticated Labor Code since the early 1970s, which, together with an array of additional laws and decrees, regulate the labor relations in our country. The highly technical nature of this subject matter makes it imperative that employers engage professional and competent advice of experienced attorneys versed in this area of the law.

Panama’s labor 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.

Morgan & Morgan has the necessary experience to provide its clients with the highest level of support and expertise in all aspects of labor law, including drafting employment contracts, collective bargaining negotiations, work permit applications, administrative proceedings, and labor litigation.
