The global pandemic has presented employers previously unimaginable challenges—about the way we work, and about employees’ and employers’ expectations around work. Prior settled views about the value of physical presence at a workplace and proximity to colleagues have either evaporated or holding on for dear life, depending on one’s point of view, while hybrid working, a term that scarcely existed two years ago, seems to be here for good. While perhaps not everything has changed, much is, at the least, being rebottled.
This annual, full-day event, a convening of top employment lawyers from around the globe, will consider what has changed, what has remained the same, and what is essential for employment lawyers to know as we move into the third year of this new world order. We will, again, bring together a first-class group of highly experienced and sophisticated practitioners, in-house counsel, and senior human resources executives, who will present, in a practical way, how best to advise the multinational employer and HR professional on hot-topic employment law issues.
