What Multinational Headquarters Need to Know About the Fundamentals of Overseas Employment Laws.

The employment-at-will system is helpful to employers, but is essentially confined to the United States. Nigeria alone has a similar system. Employment laws differ greatly overseas—especially in countries with completely different legal systems, but also in common-law countries with legal systems otherwise like ours, such as Australia, Canada, England, Ireland and South Africa.

In the past, vast differences among different countries’ national employment law systems rarely created issues. A multinational complied with, say, French law for its staff in Paris, Brazilian law for its team in Sao Paulo, and Japanese law at its office in Tokyo. These days, though, multinational headquarters globally align their human resources offerings, rules and initiatives.

Consideration goes into headquarters-driven global codes of conduct/ethics, global stand-alone policies on topics like bribery and insider trading, international stock option plans, regional sales incentive plans, cross-border RIFs and restructurings, multi-country mergers/acquisitions and international internal investigations.  Initiatives like these force multinationals to understand and account for the fundamentals of employment law overseas. But what do labor and employment laws actually require? How do they work?

This session by Donald C. Dowling, Jr. will provide answers to the above, while giving you a fast-paced and engaging overview of what multinationals need to know about the employment laws of the world.

Session Highlights:

  • The practical differences between employment-at-will and “indefinite” employment regimes abroad.
  • The completely-different role of written employment contracts abroad.
  • How unions, “works councils” and other collective labor bodies overseas differ from the US NLRA model.
  • How termination/dismissal laws work outside employment-at-will.
  • Geographical overview: Employment law in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America
