PLI's International Employment Law 2013
Employment law is no longer a local issue. Multinational employers must grapple with often conflicting standards for hiring, retaining, disciplining, and terminating employees. The issues are all the more challenging today, as employment laws, corruption laws, and whistleblower laws, from the U.S. and overseas, impose standards of conduct across borders.
PLI's program brings together highly experienced and sophisticated practitioners, in-house counsel, and senior human resources executives from around the world. They will present in a practical way, how best to advise the multinational employer in these critical issues.What you will learn:• Analysis of different legal standards across borders for hiring and firing, including enforcement of restrictive covenants and confidentially agreements• Discrimination and retaliation laws worldwide• Overseas union and works councils• Best practices in avoiding criminal and civil liability, and dealing with the international whistleblower• Cross border data privacy update
