In this webinar, you’ll learn about employment choice-of-law issues that frequently arise in cross-border employment law practice. You’ll learn about choice-of-law clauses in compensation agreements, cross-border employment policies, international benefits and equity plans, cross-border restrictive covenants, and more.

While the employee protection laws of a host-country’s current place of employment almost always govern an expat’s employment relationship, determining which country is a given employee’s “current place of employment” can sometimes be unclear – a fact question.

Regardless of how we resolve fact questions as to mobile employees’ current places of employment, in many – maybe most – jurisdictions, wage/hour laws tend to be mandatory rules that reach everyone rendering services locally, even incoming business travelers and guest workers with foreign principal places of employment.

Areas Covered in the Session :

  • Learn answers to the following questions:
  • Which country’s employment laws reach border-crossing staff like expatriates, mobile workers and employees with international territories?
  • Is a choice-of-law provision enforceable when it appears in an employment agreement, expatriate assignment letter, employee program or compensation plan?
  • What is the best strategy for including a choice-of-law clause in an employment agreement, expatriate agreement or benefits plan?
  • When can I export employment-at-will by using a U.S. choice-of-law clause in an employment arrangement?
  • Which country’s laws apply to a restrictive covenant that covers a multi-country territory?
  • Does a terminated expatriate have rights under both home and host country laws?
