Emerging Issues: Hot Topics in Employment and Labour Law for Multinational Companies in 2015 and Beyond

Live Webcast Date: Thursday, November 12, 2015 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm (ET)

Employment and Labour Law CLE/CPE

Multinational Companies face a range of labor and employment law issues ranging from the increasing strength of global unions and corporate compliance, to data privacy and whistle-blower protection. Keeping data in the cloud increases the risk of privacy breaches, third party data handling violations, and concomitantly results in additional law suits. Many countries are considering enacting a minimum wage law. These laws will affect record keeping by multi-national companies (enacted in Germany; being considered in South Africa). Multi-nationals also are subject to international certifications and standards, multi-lateral and bi-lateral treaties, and regional directives posing a need to develop dynamic risk mitigation policies and strategies. Administrators of multi-national companies should know how to deal with these pitfalls before significant legal and reputational damages arise.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with an in-depth discussion and analysis of Hot Topics in Employment and labour Law for Multi-national Companies in 2015 and Beyond. Speakers will share important insights into avoiding risks, and will review best compliance and enforcement practices in employment and labour law.
