Employment Law in the Cross-border Context - Practical Problems and Unsolved Questions

Event Details

Time: 17:00-19:15 (registration from 16.15)

Venue: British Institute of International and Comparative Law, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London WC1B 5JP

Despite the comprehensive legal framework in the area of cross-border employment law, practical problems arise in various scenarios. On 4 February, BIICL hosts an event highlighting problems and critically assessing questions which the legislative framework and European and national case law have either not answered or even caused. Areas to be dealt with are jurisdiction and applicable law in cross-border employment cases, poaching of workers as well as posting of workers. The event will include case studies encouraging a debate on the questions yet to be solved.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
