International companies operating in the United States need to keep pace with developments in employment law. The U.S. Employment Law in a Global Context training will introduce participants to key legal issues facing in-house counsel and human resources managers of international companies operating in the U.S. or seeking to establish themselves in the U.S. market. The training is also appropriate for foreign legal academics who wish to gain knowledge about current issues in U.S. employment law.

This training includes ten sessions led by prominent experts in a variety of focus areas within the field of labor and employment law. Session discussions will highlight the responsibilities and rights of individuals within the United States workforce and include detailed presentations designed to equip participants with practical specialized knowledge. Topics that will be covered during the sessions are listed in the “Schedule” tab on the left.

Employment, social protection, decent work and rights in the workplace directly correlate with significant targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Goal 8 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) strives to “promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.” After completion of the U.S. Employment Law in a Global Context Training, individuals will be educated on labor policies, worker rights and current employment issues in the United States in order to be able to operate effectively in a dynamic global employment context.
