Upcoming events, webinars and training

  • Austrian employment law training

    Although there are similarities, it is dangerous to consider the German and Austrian employment law systems to be one and the same. Austrian law is distinct in many ways, most importantly in relation to probationary periods, the termination of employment contracts and severance. There are also sufficient differences in contract law to make the use of one model employment contract, for German and Austrian employees, a potentially expensive error for employers.
  • Cross border working - international remote working and international assignments

    As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic remote working has become far more wide spread. In the past when employees worked in another jurisdiction it was usually as part of an international assignment initiated by the employer.
  • Diversity and inclusion conference - intergenerational fairness

    Intergenerational fairness has increasingly become a focus area for employers with the pandemic highlighting perceived inequalities and the need to address generational issues in employment strategies.
  • Dutch employment law training

    Employee rights are well protected under Dutch law, especially in dismissal cases, but employers are able to swiftly adjust staff levels in their company due to changes in, for example a fluctuation in workload. A wide variety of options are available for employers to hire people in a flexible manner provided that the rules are used properly.
  • Education Webinar - Company law refresher for education institutions

    In this webinar we will look at :
  • Employment litigation webinar - Social media and group actions

    In this webinar, we will cover: The potential impact group actions can have on businesses; the impact that social media has had, and continues to have, on group actions; and steps employers can take to protect their business interests.
  • European HR - managing multi-jurisdictional projects

    Managing teams of people is challenging at the best of times. Working across European borders in multiple jurisdictions is even more difficult due to cultural and legal differences. Heavily regulated employment law regimes that differ significantly in their approach can also pose additional challenges, particularly in light of the COVID-19 crisis and the severe impact it is having on economies across the globe.
  • French employment law training

    Based on the Napoleonic code and amended by statute ever since, French employment law is markedly different from the UK’s.
  • German employment law training

    Germany is a major trading partner for many countries throughout the world, not to mention the most important single market in the European Union.
  • Germany - working with the works council

    It is a widespread belief among HR experts of multinational companies that it is extremely difficult to operate in Germany; some foreign companies may even refrain from setting-up a well-staffed business presence on the German market because they believe that endless negotiations with employee representatives are unavoidable.
