Littler is the largest law practice in the world exclusively devoted to representing management in every aspect of labor and employment law. We serve as a single point of contact for our clients’ global labor and employment needs, helping multinational employers to move their employees across borders, comply with employee relations laws, and assist employers with such international issues as overseas privacy laws and applying company policies worldwide.
From our regional office in Singapore, we advise both Asia-based corporations and companies operating in the region on their human resources and employment law compliance needs. With a singular focus on representing management in every aspect of labor and employment law, we offer a unique ability to help clients strategically design and implement both multi-country and regional human resources initiatives that take into account the local customs, laws and expectations of employers and employees in Asia Pacific.
Drawing on our knowledge of the region and our local relationships to provide strategic guidance to companies in Asia Pacific on their global HR initiatives, our robust platform and depth of experience provides service to companies operating in the region on complying with a complex web of global employment laws.
Our global practice includes attorneys who are licensed or qualified to practice in Asia Pacific countries, and others who provide further experience working with Asia Pacific-based companies doing business in the U.S. Together they cover employment matters in Asia Pacific jurisdictions including Australia and New Zealand, China, Japan, South Korea, and multiple countries beyond, through our regular collaboration with partners throughout the region. They are well versed on the legal and cultural differences that can pose challenges in the workplace for employers with Asia Pacific operations, as well as those based in Asia Pacific who are doing business in the U.S.
We advise clients on a variety of litigious and non-litigious aspects of employment and workplace relations law in the region, particularly for employers who may be new to operating in these countries, including hiring, employment policies, rules of employment, and general human resources issues, collective and enterprise agreements, equal employment opportunity, employee discipline and termination, engaging contractors, and training and education, and multiple issues unique to each country.
We are pleased to present The Littler Global Guide – an online portal providing in-depth information and analysis of a broad range of international employment and labor law issues. Authored by legal practitioners and scholars from around the world, The Littler Global Guide covers workplace law topics in over 40 countries/territories and the European Union, across six continents. This new format for drawing on Littler’s International practice and experience enables readers to drill down into one country’s law or compile a country-to-country comparison on a single topic.
