Taken from the briefing Cross-Border Application of U.S. Employment Laws: Traps for U.S. Employers in a Global Economy recorded March, 2017 in New York.

The twenty-first century workplace is mobile and global. Companies increasingly outsource employees, deploy managers in offices or facilities overseas, and contract with employees or contractors in foreign countries. Employers understand that these relationships raise exposure under the laws of the host country. Employers are often unaware, however, that these employment or contractual relationships may also lead to exposure under employment laws of the United States, including exposure for discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims for conduct that takes place abroad.

Listen to Juan C. Enjamio, partner in Hunton & Williams LLP’s Labor and Employment Team and head of its employment practice in Florida, for a one-hour discussion on the application of U.S. employment laws to conduct that occurs abroad, the potential liability traps for U.S.-based employers, and ways to protect against such exposure.
