Global Employment Lawyer - Nov. & Dec. 2015

 

Look out, beware—it’s holiday party season!

For many companies, having an annual holiday party is part of the culture and tradition of the organization. Company holiday parties provide employees with an opportunity to socialize and celebrate together, and can certainly help boost morale and engender loyalty. At the same time, however, there are risks lurking. Depending on the type of party and the part of the world you are having it in, there are different types of risks that can come into play—and we have some tips to mitigate them.

What’s not risky? Keeping up to date on the hot topics in employment and labor issues from around the globe which could affect your business goals in those regions.

From all of your friends at Dentons, we wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous holiday season!

Employment updates from around the globe

557_Global_Employment_Newsletter_Web_Image

We are proud to offer you the initial issue of Dentons’ Global Employment Lawyer.

Whether you are an employer, human resources executive, in-house or outside counsel, mobility professional, or anyone interested in employment and labor issues around the globe, our goal is to keep you informed of trends and developments in the area of global employment law.

In this issue, our lawyers examine:

  • The task of crafting a non-compete clause under English law which is not unreasonably broad in scope, so as to be enforceable in court,  without risking unwanted commercial consequences for employers;
  • Likely changes to fixed-term employment contracts in Poland in the wake of a recent European Court of Justice determination finding them inconsistent with EU law, and some updates on key global developments in the region;
  • Recent legislation in the UAE requiring all employers in Dubai to provide employees with compulsory health care insurance;
  • Hidden US tax issues arising from new IRS regulations that consider severance payments made after signing a release potentially to be “deferred” compensation;
  • and many more topics.
