International: Now Available - The Global Employer Termination Handbook 2020-2021 Edition

In brief

Baker McKenzie's Global Employment & Compensation Group presents the 2020-2021 edition of The Global Employer Termination Handbook


Key takeaways

As businesses react to heightened economic uncertainty and seek to future-proof their organizations in the wake of pandemic disruption, many are seeking to reduce labor costs amid cost-cutting pressures. Global employers must understand limitations under local laws, explore ways to mitigate risks, and be mindful of practical business issues as they seek to implement reductions to their workforces. Navigating complex employee selection procedures, planning for notification and consultation requirements, and anticipating severance and other benefit issues are vital steps in the process when implementing these difficult decisions. ​

This complimentary handbook provides employers and human resources professionals with a comprehensive overview of the key aspects of termination labor law in 34 countries. It covers termination by both employer and employee, notice entitlements, important details relating to protected employees, mandatory severance, collective redundancy situations and claims.
