Employment law for In-House Counsel
Global Work Regulations and the Key Trends and Challenges Facing International Businesses

Event Description

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are still grappling with the decision to have employees return to the office or stay virtual, and the situation is even more complex for international companies. While a hybrid work environment has many benefits, it also comes with potential legal issues that businesses need to be aware of before making the switch.

 

Join us on Thursday, June 30, at 12pm ET for our IHC Deep Dives Series as Rachael Oakley, Paul Matthews, and Olivia Sinfield of Osborne Clarke will look back at how companies have and continue to approach hybrid working and working from anywhere as an international business. Our panel will also share insights on newly developing topics and challenges, including:

 

– Working from anywhere – How international businesses can adopt different models to navigate the challenges of an international workforce, given the variance in tax and labor laws;

– Hybrid working – How have businesses successfully transitioned to hybrid working as the new norm and what are the best ways to overcome the obstacles, including employee consultation, changes to terms and conditions and resistance from employees;

– Green HR – How can the HR team play a role in supporting a business’s decarbonization efforts; and

– HR and the metaverse – How will companies navigate the health and safety, privacy and mental health implications of this new technology when our workplaces will no longer be just the office.
