Managing an international Workforce - Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo e Soci at Lewis Silkin’s annual event in London

03 Feb 2017

An international comparison of employment law

Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo e Soci will take part today at the annual event "Managing an International Workforce: 2017 & Beyond", organised by the English law firm Lewis Silkin, during which an international confrontation of all employment law and HR management aspects will take place.

This year the event will focus on the effects of the Brexit on transnational workers and on the new types of employment generated by a labour market that is increasingly being influenced by new technologies.

"Regardless of the Brexit effect, the majority of companies that operate in a global market find themselves having to take daily stock of issues concerning transnational workers, especially managers, which have responsibilities that surpass the borders of the nation in which the company’s headquarters are found – comments Valeria Morosini, a partner at Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo e Soci, who will take part in the panel “Break for the border – how best to protect your business from departing senior employees with international responsibilities” –. Executives who have international expertise are very precious and are often the subject of interest for competitors. Each company must therefore implement policies and agreements for protecting as best possible its know-how, confidential information and preferential relations with the client.  This is even more compex when you’d like to be able to enforce agreements and obligations in more than one jurisdiction".

These are the topics which will be dealt with by Valeria, together with the Swedish, Spanish and English member firms of Ius Laboris (the largest global Alliance of employment and HR law specialists which Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo e Soci contributed to founding), who will be joined by the GC of the American multinational company Discovery.

Marco Sideri, a Senior Associate at the Firm will instead be taking part in the debate on gig economy, expanding on how technology and the development of numerous online platforms such as Foodora and Deliveroo have created new forms of employment and self-employed work.
