Multi-national companies doing business in the Muslim world face numerous challenges in the human resources and employment law arena. Great care must be taken to understand what is specifically prohibited by local law and how local customs and traditions affect the workplace. Not only are there differences among all the countries, but also from region to region. Sophisticated employers should anticipate that conflicts may arise between these laws and customs and a company’s own code of conduct. Among the issues highlighted in this webinar are:

  • The Role of Women in the Workplace
  • Workplace Harassment
  • Regulating Personal Intimate Relationships
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Religion
  • Racial and Other Discrimination
