Program Description

Changes in labour and employment law across Europe continue to impact virtually all employers. These legal challenges are compounded by the fact that companies must comply with both EU directives as well as the laws in the countries in which they do business. Our speakers for this program will offer insight into:

  • The new EU data privacy laws and how government agencies will be aggressively enforcing these rules
  • Effectively implementing workforce reductions, redundancies, and reorganizations with the least amount of risk of legal problems
  • How European businesses are addressing the challenges faced by their employees in balancing work and family commitments
  • Regulating age discrimination across the EU
  • Identifying and managing the legal risks of TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment)
