Principles of employment law in Asia-Pacific

Who should attend

This course is relevant to international HR managers and directors with responsibility for employees in Asia-Pacific.

Synopsis

This course is aimed at employers who need a broad overview of the employment landscape in Asia-Pacific. Unlike the EU, where directives are implemented in each country but follow common principles, Asia-Pacific jurisdictions take very different approaches to HR legal issues. Even Hong Kong and China, which are one country, operate HR legal regimes which are polar opposites.

  Practical guidance on main issues of employment in Asia-Pacific
  Overview of key employment issues from hiring to termination
  Introduction to unions
  Insight into cultural differences
  Future developments
