Employment lawyer in Basel?

Hi

I have a friend who has been told she will be made redundant from her company as part of a previously announced 'productivity initiative'.

The thing is, she had no previous inkling of this - her annual appraisal was good (indeed improved versus prior year) and her team isn't actually being down-sized; someone else is being brought in from another area.

This sounds a bit dodgy to me. Does anyone know of an employment lawyer in the Basel area who could talk to my friend to see if she has any case to bring leverage against her employer? (in terms of an enhanced payout - she's so hacked off with them she's keen to leave now).

Thanks in advance!

I think I have said this before elsewhere but...

Any company can make you redundant for any or indeed no reason as long as they adhere to the terms of the contract ie notice period and as long as none of the prohibition conditions are in force or other official constraints are neglected. As such while I can give you details of a lawyer I am not sure what you will get from him apart from a bill.
