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.
Our Global Practice includes attorneys in the U.S. who are licensed to practice in Asia Pacific countries, including Australia and Japan. They have practiced law in the U.S. and their respective countries, providing U.S.-based clients convenient access to experienced counsel on legal matters regarding jurisdictions in distant time zones. 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.
Additional U.S. attorneys provide further experience working with Asia Pacific-based companies doing business in the U.S. and with employment matters in Asia Pacific jurisdictions, including China, Japan, South Korea, and multiple countries beyond, through our regular collaboration with partners throughout the region.
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 60 countries and the EU, across 6 continents. This new format for drawing on Littler’s International practice and experience enables readers to drill down into one country’s law or search across several countries and compile information on a single topic.
