Employers operating internationally have to understand the context of the employment relationship and the role of the employment contract in each of the countries in which they operate. To ignore the HR aspects of your international expansion puts your organisation at risk of claims by employees or even by the authorities. For any employer, this may mean not only struggling to understand documents in different languages but also with harmonizing widely varying terms and conditions of employment.
Our experience includes drafting and reviewing local terms and conditions for all levels of employees, advising on changing terms and conditions and project managing your organisation’s cross border employment contracts.
We can advise you as to the law applicable to the employment relationship and also as to custom and practice in the countries you operate in.
