Maritime Employment

Legals services for employment in the Maritime industries

The Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) came into force for the UK on 7 August 2014. It sets out the minimum working and living rights for seafarers.

It covers a multitude of industry sector specific matters in relation to health and safety employment rights, contracts of employment and holiday pay.

Given the nature of the industry a good understanding of cross jurisdictional issues is also required.

The team at SRF led by Max Winthrop has case law experience in the field that enables them to come to practical solutions for clients.

Max and the team can also draw on industry legal experts in other key jurisdictions to enable clients to see the issues and the solutions in the broadest context.

David is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association International Committee and can similarly draw on a broad range of contacts within the European area.
