After his admission to the bar in 1992, he initially worked for a Cologne employment law boutique, almost two years of which were spent in its Leipzig office. He has been a lawyer at CBH since 1996. His main focus is on providing ongoing labour law support for company personnel work as well as advising and assisting employers nationwide in all matters of collective and individual labour law. A special feature of his work is his focus on employers in the “public sector” and the solution of the special problems that arise for them, especially those relating to staff representation law. Dr. Jörg Laber is chairman of several permanent conciliation boards under the LPVG NRW. Dr. Jörg Laber has been a specialist lawyer for labour law since 1995 and is a member of the German Labour Court Association and the European Employment Lawyers Association (EELA).

In addition, Dr. Jörg Laber has appeared in numerous specialist publications as well as seminars and lectures on labour law.
