Labor Law

De Castro & Robles’ services include the field of labor law. Our experienced attorneys are able to assist in all aspects of labor law, from drafting labor contracts and litigation to negotiations with labor unions.  Panamanian Labor Law is quite protective of the employee, hence employers need to take particular care on how interactions are managed.

Our expertise also encompasses labor aspects related to work at sea on board Panamanian-flagged ships, Work at Ports and other Terminals, and the chart governing compensation resulting from injuries, death and disabilities.

Panamanian Law has restrictions on labor for foreign nationals, these have to acquire a labor permit to work in the country and liberal professions (such as Law, Medicine, Accounting, Engineering, Brokerage) are restricted to Panamanian citizens.
