Hiring & Firing Around the World: Avoid Legal Tripwires in the Top Countries for Global Expansion
Are you starting to hire across borders? It’s important to be prepared.
The war for talent is heating up and businesses are smart to consider qualified, passionate candidates from around the world.
That said, hiring and firing in countries other than the U.S. comes with interesting (and often surprising) challenges.
In the U.S., companies can hire quickly as business entities are already established. They can fire quickly as well, so long as the reason isn’t illegal.
Everything changes on an international scale. Hiring without setting up a subsidiary is impossible. And the concept of at-will employment, where companies can let go of employees at any time, does not exist.
What does this mean for your international expansion plans and your business? What would normally be an uneventful employment action or termination in the U.S. could blindside your company in an international context.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- 3 things every HR lead needs to know when it’s time to hire globally
- Surprising facts about employment law and benefits packages in EMEA, APAC and more
- What U.S.-based HR teams need to know about the termination process in key expansion countries (and real stories from international HR specialists on the ground)
We can help you make international hiring a success.
