Editor's message: Employment laws vary significantly from country to country. This presents a complex challenge for employers that operate in multiple jurisdictions, especially as legislation is always changing and breaches of the law can have serious repercussions.
XpertHR International has 45 country guides that contain information on the employee lifecycle, from recruitment to termination of employment. They are reviewed and updated by local experts.
We are in the process of rolling out a new “future developments” resource in each of our country guides. This new feature outlines significant future developments that will impact employment law in that country, preparing employers for the legislative changes that lie ahead.
