Issue 11

Dear Committee Members,

We are glad to present the 11th issue of the International Employment Lawyer.

In a globalised world with a borderless workforce, multinational corporations face an increasing need for uniform employment terms and conditions. In this issue the authors focus on legal challenges in developing employment policies. This issue focuses on the committee program for the recent fall meeting in Brussels.

The program on compliance at the Annual Meeting in New York was a tremendous success. The program once again confirmed the relevance of co-sponsored sessions.

We still have openings as national reporters in some jurisdictions related to our new online regional updates, and we encourage all members to volunteer if you are interested in contributing with employment law updates. Please contact Vice-Chair Philippe Despr√®s or me for more information.

For the first time ever, this committee will organise a stand-alone conference in Hamburg on expatriation. The conference will be co-sponsored by AIJA. We hope to see all of you at this important event.

Best regards,
Anders Etgen Reitz
Editor in Chief
