The legal framework governing the employment relationship in most of the world is dramatically different from that of the US, reflecting differences between the civil law and common law systems as well as contrasting historical and cultural contexts. In this seminar, we will review the most important concepts of labor and employment law outside the US, including formation and termination of the employment relationship ("just cause" protections vs. US "employment at will"); the concept of "information and consultation" of works councils and other employee representative bodies; global discrimination and diversity matters; international labor standards; special employee protections which impact multinational corporate restructurings and transactions; non-competes and other restrictive covenants; and litigation of employment claims in systems which do not have US discovery and trial processes.
