Choice-of-employment-law is surely the toughest and most common legal problem in all of international employment law. That said, for the vast majority of employment relationships around the world, choice-of-law analysis is a non-issue that we rarely ever think about. (Obviously, a Paris baker working locally for a French bakery is protected only by French employment law and a Buenos Aires banker working locally for an Argentine bank is protected only by Argentine employment law.)

Where choice-of-employment-law becomes an urgent issue—sometimes fiercely contested in expensive litigation—is wherever the employment relationship crosses borders, increasingly common in today’s internationalized world.   Please join Donald C. Dowling, Jr., shareholder at Littler Mendelson P.C. as he considers:

  • foreign hires (recruited in one country to work in another)
  • international business travelers (employed in one country, temporarily working in another)
  • benefits and equity plans issued in one country covering staff in other countries
  • expatriates and international “secondees”
  • international commuters (living in one country but working in another)
  • foreign correspondents and overseas teleworkers (working in one country for an employer in another)
  • employees with international territories (working in several countries at the same time)
  • mobile or “peripatetic” employees (with no fixed place of employment—sailors, flight crews, international tour guides and the like)
  • international co-/dual-/joint-employees (staff split-payrolled by, or simultaneously employed by, two employer affiliates in different countries)
  • former employees accused of breaching restrictive covenants with a multi-country territorial scope

This fast-paced program explains how local countries’ employment laws “attach” and then “shut off” in all aspects of international HR.

Who should attend

  • In-house and law firm lawyers advising multinationals on employment law issues that cross borders
