The Risks of Employment Litigation in a World of Work without Borders

Looking at the globally distributed post-Covid workforce, the room for employment disputes are rife and employers need to review their respective risks from the bird’s eye view of their distributed workplace. In the war for global talent and a global footprint, what laws have jurisdiction over your workplace and can you comply?

  • Alternative dispute resolution clauses in employment contracts
  • Avoiding multiple jurisdiction claims (domicile of employee and of HQ company)
  • Protecting and enforcing the employer’s proprietary interest and NDA undertakings in an agile ever-changing company
