Latin and South American countries are becoming increasingly attractive to multi-national companies seeking to open offices on a global basis. Many of these countries have specialized and often unique labor legal frameworks that require knowledge of and compliance with local laws, policies, and practices, as well as employee-protective laws that require preventive measures. This webinar will focus on the practical and most important issues that arise when opening a business and hiring workers in Latin and South America, including:
- A general overview of the corporate and labor formalities required to set up a presence and to hire employees;
- The most important guidelines for a successful labor relationship and most important principles to take into account;
- Labor costs and minimum thresholds, including a comparison of different costs and requirements in different jurisdictions, the scope of remuneration vs. non-remunerative benefits, and which employees are exempt from all or part of these costs.
