Human Resources


Understanding the major and minor differences in legislation and regulations governing labour relations, executive compensation, recruiting, employment, training and development, employee relocations, human rights and other areas as well as cultural differences from country to country have a major impact on successful human resources management and your organization's ability to comply with local laws.

The World Law Group's Human Resources Law Practice Group is made up of member firm representatives working in these and related fields around the globe. They meet regularly by teleconference and at World Law Group member conferences to exchange information about emerging HR issues, challenges and global solutions for multinational clients. The group also works on comparative law projects and resources, and organizes webinars and other information events for member firm lawyers and their clients.

Many members have also worked on multinational teams brought together to assist clients on specific HR law challenges, including multi-country workforce reductions (often following a cross-border merger or acquisition), advising on the formation of multinational profit-sharing plans, and various compliance training programs.

For more information, contact this group's leaders or your local World Law Group member firm.
