Further to the latest amendments to the Labour Law, pursuant to the MoU established between the Portuguese Government and the «troika» and to the ‘Compromise on Growth, Competitivity and Jobs' signed between the Government and the Social Partners in mid January 2012, Porto's Commercial Association (Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Porto) and Vieira de Almeida & Associados (VdA) will be presenting a joint conference on the impact of these measures on companies.

The event will be taking place on 8 February at Porto's Commercial Association premises in Palácio da Bolsa, between 9 a.m. and 12.30 a.m.

VdA's lawyers from the Labour area of practice Tiago Piló and Benedita Gonçalves will be approaching issues such as amendments to the Unemployment Subsidy, to Term Contracts, to Compensations for Termination of Work Contract, as well as changes regarding Dismissals, Working Time Organization, Holidays and Collective Agreements. Issues will be approached in a very practical way considering the companies' day-to-day businesses. Isabel Gião Andrade, who heads VdA's Porto office, will also be talking at the conference.
