Please join Seyfarth Shaw International Employment Law partners, Dominic Hodson and Julia Gorham, for a practical discussion of several important considerations and updates for multinational employers in the Asia Pacific, including: 

  • The tightening of regimes in Singapore as employment law become more protectionist and employee-friendly, and the implications for multinational employers;
  • An overview of and key differences in the family-friendly employment laws (e.g. parental leave, flexible-working, etc.) across key Asia markets, including in China, India, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea; and
  • What employers need to know about the various channels for employment disputes in Asia.
