Squire Patton Boggs presents a webinar intended to de-code India’s complex employment landscape. There are a multitude of employment laws to be taken into account, some of which date back to the early part of the last century. As one of the world’s fastest-growing economies over recent years, India’s employment legislation has needed to adapt to the global economy and we have seen a number of legislative changes, with more on the horizon.

Businesses with operations in India, as well as those looking to enter India, need to be on top of the evolving employment legislation landscape.

On 27 February 2019 at 9 a.m. GMT (10 a.m. CET, 5 p.m. SGT) an India employment specialist and member of our 100-strong global India Practice, and Aliff Fazelbhoy, senior partner at ALMT Legal, a frequent collaborator with Squire Patton Boggs, will discuss:

  • Indian employment legislation (including India-specific aspects)
  • Key points to consider when hiring
  • Structuring compensation packages
  • Issues associated with workforce reductions/terminations
  • Transfers of employees
  • Expatriate and secondment arrangements for non-Indian employees
  • Proposed employment legislation changes

The webinar will be moderated by partner Julia Yeo, a Singapore-based regional Asia hub employment specialist.

The 50-minute presentation will be followed by a 10-minute online question and answer session.

Intended to help you manage labour and employment law risk across your international operations, the webinar will be of interest to both HR professionals and in-house counsel.


This webinar is part of our 2019 series focusing on the key labour and employment issues in countries throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and the US. We will be providing details of further webinars in the series in due course.
