You are invited to the January 27, 2010, education program of the Houston International HR Roundtable. Our speaker will be Jordan Cowman of Akin Gump presenting the first in our Tough International HR Challenge Series: Global Terminations. Employers are increasingly facing the consequences of their decisions to think and act globally, especially when it comes to employment responsibilities. Jordan’s presentation will cover many of the issues facing global employers today, particulary terminations. At the end of the presentation, the audience will have a clear picture of the nature of employment liability related to terminations and other cost-cutting measures when operations are in the global arena.
Jordan’s presentations are always lively and contain real-world examples. His presentation will provide an understanding of the relationship between US and non-US labor laws and how they differ in their application and purpose, and will equip the multinational employer with the right questions to ask before implementing terminations and other cost-cutting measures.
