Your workforce is the lifeblood of your business. The success or failure of your business is dependent on the team you build and how you manage it. 

In Vietnam’s current economy, many companies struggle to recruit, retain and effectively manage skilled workers. KPMG’s Employment Team can assist you in navigating Vietnam’s complex labour law regime to deal with these challenges and to drive your business forward. 

Vietnam is also in the process of overhauling its Labour Code to meet its commitments under the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement and Comprehensive Progressive Trans Pacific Partnership which will result in dramatic reforms to meet international standards. Our Employment Team can assist you to adapt to these changes without interruption to your business.

We advise on all employment issues arising in the lifecycle of a company, from initially recruiting your workforce, to establishing key human resources policies, to dealing with labour disputes and terminations, to settling final obligations to your employees in the context of winding up.

At KPMG, we offer employment legal services with local expertise and global experience. We also work closely with KPMG’s Global Mobility Services team to provide immigration support, including applying for work permits, business visas, work visas and temporary residence cards.
