The Most Challenging Issues Facing Global Employers

International law firm Littler published the highlights of its 2011 Global Employer Institute conference in a 70-page report on some of “the most challenging issues facing global employers.” It’s a comprehensive overview, touching on globalization, employee security, labor relations, employment agreements, and a number of other topics. Three articles within the report caught our eye in particular:

“The Globalization of Employment and Labor Law: Breaking Developments, Trends, and Practical Compliance Initiatives for 2012,” which outlines eight “hot topics” that global employers cannot afford to ignore, like social media and global privacy, whistleblowing and business corruption, and discrimination across the globe; “Corruption: A Practical Approach to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act,” which includes both an in-depth look at the two principal laws driving the global fight against corruption (the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act) and also a discussion of best practices that global corporations can adopt to prevent bribery and minimize liability; and “Africa: A Wealth of Business Opportunities in an Unfamiliar Legal Landscape,” a useful look at an often-overlooked region and potential marketplace.
