Printable Agenda     Additional Program Information

As organizations doing business globally know or quickly discover, long-term or even short-term assignments away from an individual's home country regularly raise a large number of questions and challenges – legal, cultural and matters of business strategy and employee relations. This unique conference – bringing together leading labor, employment and Human Resources attorneys for employers from more than 10 countries in one conference day – will provide a valuable opportunity to learn about the global implications of corporate policy, including issues relating to:

  • The evolving landscape of workplace privacy rules 
  • Corporate codes of conduct: how well do they travel from the U.S.? 
  • Challenges in cross-border employment contracts 
  • Lessons from the downturn -- strategies for restructuring, and other workplace changes 
  • Global labor strategies -- preparing for new pressures and new realities

Join lawyers from Ius Laboris – the Alliance of Leading Employment Law Practices – as they discuss the evolving world of employment law for businesses operating around the globe.
