Firing has been called the “capital punishment” of employment law. Not surprisingly, laws worldwide (outside U.S. employment-at-will) tend to regulate dismissals intrusively, amplifying the inherent complexities of the termination process of employees overseas.

This innovative session illustrates a simple but typical scenario: A multinational decides to dismiss a long-serving, highly compensated overseas executive whose performance has slipped or who no longer is needed. The caveat: the executive has not committed any overt misconduct and refuses to go.

Tackling this same situation across key jurisdictions - Brazil, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico and Japan - our speakers will address the core questions:

  • How do we fire someone overseas? Is this firing even possible?
  • What are the steps in the termination process?
  • How long will it take and how much will it cost?
  • Can the employer get an enforceable release?
