About the Committee

The ever evolving globalized workplace requires deep knowledge of human resources laws and practices around the world. The International Employment Law Committee provides a platform for thought leadership and expertise on key issues and developments in international employment law. In addition to traditional areas of focus, for example management of cross border human resources, overseas assignments, mergers and acquisitions, dismissals and litigation, the committee also works alongside other committees in areas such as data protection, immigration, bribery and corruption. This commitee seeks to demystify international employment laws around the world by helping attorneys, human resource specialists, and businesses better understand the employment law challenges they face when doing business outside the United States. Our experienced members are not only knowledgeable in the local laws but also teleconference monthly, publishes an informative newsletter quarterly, sponsors frequent panels at the Section's Fall and Winter meetings, and conducts periodic stand-alone webinars and teleconferences on hot international employment law topics.
