World Law Group's Labor & Employment Practice Group is made up of member firm lawyers working in these and related fields around the globe. They meet regularly both virtually and at industry 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 podcasts and other informative events for member firm lawyers and their clients.
Understanding the major and minor differences in legislation and regulations governing labor relations, executive compensation, recruiting, employment, training and development, employee relocations and human rights, and immigration, among others, is essential for multinational companies. Having a local guide with first-hand knowledge of the cultural differences from country to country can have a major impact on successful human resources management and your organization's ability to comply with local laws.
Our members have collaborated on cross-border mergers and acquisitions to assist clients on specific human resources law challenges, including multi-country workforce reductions, advising on the formation of multinational profit-sharing plans, and various compliance training programs.
This group is targeted toward member firm lawyers who assist clients with labor, employment, pensions and benefits, and immigration matters both domestic and cross-border.
