Asian employment law: Principles and culture

Who should attend

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

Synopsis

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