Current Trends in the Global Workplace: Best Practices on Entering and Exiting Countries

Presented by

  • Brian S. Arbetter, Partner, Sheppard Mullin
  • Dawn M. Lurie, Partner, Sheppard Mullin

Whether your company is new or long established, globalization within your workforce is likely something you are encountering. Whether it be entering a country for the first time, operational challenges in a country in which you already exist, or the need to retract, outsource or exit from a particular jurisdiction, keeping up with the various employment and mobility laws and regulations around the world can be quite difficult. Navigating the U.S. immigration system can also be complex as authorities are increasingly scrutinizing visa related compliance.

Sheppard Mullin’s International Employment and Mobility Law Practice simplifies the process for clients. The attorneys in this Group regularly track the laws, regulations, best practices, and pending political and legislative developments regarding the workplace in every major country around the world. The Group puts this knowledge and expertise to good use providing a one stop shop for any company’s global workplace needs. From developing initial global workplace strategy, to implementing a client’s plan (including all drafting of documents), to providing clients with industry and location benchmarked best practices information, the Group is able to assist multinational companies every step of the way.

The Group is pleased to announce that as a standalone breakout session immediately preceding the Firm’s Labor and Employment Law Update series, we will be offering a 60 minute program for clients titled “Current Trends in the Global Workplace: Best Practices on Entering and Exiting Countries (with Emphasis on the Developing World)”.

This program will pay particular focus to best practices industry by industry and region by region. In addition to providing updates on new laws and legal requirements, the program will also cover pending legislation and political developments, as well as provide an in-depth view on key developing world countries.

This program is also being offered in the following locations:

  • San Diego - September 17
  • Orange County - October 8
  • Los Angeles - October 22
