Squire Patton Boggs presents a series of webinars focusing on the key labour and employment issues in countries throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and the United States.

Given in English by our local labour and employment law experts, each 60-minute webinar comprises a 50-minute presentation covering key “hot topics” in the featured jurisdiction, 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 webinars will be of interest to both HR professionals and in-house counsel.

On 12 October 2016 at 3.00 pm GMT (4.00 pm BST, 5.00 pm CEST, 11.00 am EDT, 8.00 am PDT), the featured country is Germany. Tanya Weber from our Berlin office and Lutz Hoheisel from Frankfurt will provide updates on:

  • recent Labour Court judgments that all employers in Germany need to be aware of; and
  • the legislation pipeline for 2017, in particular major reforms in employee leasing (agency workers) that will come into effect on 1 January.
