International Employment Law Update

Learn the potential risks and liabilities surrounding employment law in foreign countries.

As in the U.S., workplace law undergoes rapid changes in foreign countries when new governments take control or struggle with the challenges of removing potential legal barriers to economic development and job creation. Further, different cultural perspectives and traditions influence the view and decisions of judges in foreign jurisdictions. Consequently, legislative responses and court decisions in many foreign jurisdictions regarding workplace issues such as harassment, LGBTQ rights at the workplace, pay equity and transparency, the permissible use of independent contractors and other alternative forms of worker engagement frequently are quite different than in the U.S. This topic is designed to inform HR decision makers and in-house counsel in the U.S. of these new legal developments, explain the potential risks and liabilities, and suggest ways to ensure compliance.
