In this episode of our Cross-Border Catch-Up podcast series, Lina Fernandez (Boston) and Shirin Aboujawde (New York) conclude a wide-ranging discussion of important issues to consider when companies are contemplating expanding their businesses outside of the United States and hiring abroad. Shirin and Lina, both of whom are members of the firm’s Cross-Border Practice Group, discuss employment protections such as government-mandated collective bargaining agreements. They also cover the expansion of pay equity measures, including laws requiring employers to conduct pay assessments, and report or post pay data. Our speakers also discuss data privacy and termination of employment, which requires court approval in some countries.
