Our experience with international HR and labour law matters

Examples of our regular work, across the world, includes:

  • Cross-border HR projects – from the strategic planning stages, through to supporting them through to management and execution;  
  • Preparation and harmonisation of employment documents (including employment contracts,  staff handbooks and bonus schemes) across multiple jurisdictions;
  • Termination of employment of senior employees across EMEA and APAC (including at board level);
  • Day-to-day support on in-country HR queries, ranging from calculation of holiday in France, to monitoring of employee communications in Finland;
  • Putting infrastructure in place to engage employees in countries where there is no local entity;
  • Tricky employee secondments;
  • International restrictive covenant advice;
  • Defending international employment litigation (including several multi-claimant cases within EMEA); and
  • Advising on works council compliance within Europe.

Why choose us?

Our clients tell us that our international service creates efficiencies for their business, including in relation to legal spend, as it tends to save time and money on international HR issues and projects. This is because the assistance that we provide ensures that they get to their end goals more quickly, and with less back and forth between HR and legal, than would otherwise would be the case.

In addition, the feedback that we have had from our clients is that we have added significant value by supporting global HR teams to develop their knowledge of international HR management, we issue-spot, and pick up on trends and learning points. This means that, over time, HR are less likely to need our support for day-to-day international issues.
