Employment law issues, if not considered early in the strategy for a multi-jurisdictional business acquisition or an outsourcing deal, can give rise to significant avoidable costs and delay if issues are not spotted and resolved in advance. Knowing where the employment law hotspots are will help you to minimise delay, costs and civil and criminal liabilities.

We invite you to join a discussion with our transactional and employment lawyers who will share their top tips for managing employee transfers in multi-jurisdictional transactions, and to receive a copy of our new guide on managing these issues.

The discussion will focus on:

  • key dos and don’ts when transferring employees in various different parts of the world,
  • key work-arounds in particularly problematic jurisdictions, and
  • mistakes we have seen commonly made and the serious consequences they have had.
