October 2016

Watch Webinar Recording (CLE/CPD Credit Available)

Global labor-management relations are complex and can be volatile, and countries have taken very different approaches to labor-management regulations. These different approaches can greatly affect how a global corporation conducts and grows its business.
This Global Employer Solutions webinar compares similar and contrasting trends in labor law in the U.S., Australia, and select EU countries. A panel of K&L Gates international lawyers also discusses recent reforms affecting unions and work councils, and provide their respective overviews of the changes in labor laws employers should expect in the near future.
Topics include:

  • Employee representatives and their respective roles
  • Information/consultation with work councils in different business and transactional matters and related risks
  • The expansive role and jurisdiction sought by the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in policing employee policies and handbooks of non-unionized companies, including global codes of conduct and social media policies
  • How U.S. unions approach organizing foreign-owned companies
  • Experiences in representing foreign-owned/foreign-branded companies in labor-management matters
