Program Overview:

The process of firing is different in most jurisdictions and a very sensitive topic, especially with social medias now. Employers want to act in compliance with their corporate policies and local laws.

Singapore, China and Hong Kong have different laws and regulations depending on the seniority of employees and the industries. With recent changes to improve regulations and rights/obligations of employees and employers, there are many pitfalls to avoid financial costs and reputational damages for the employers.

In this seminar, Ms. Berube will discuss the practice of hiring and firing in Singapore, China and Hong Kong including topics such as: reasons for termination, consequences, procedure and differences between dismissal/resignation between local and foreign employees.

Finally, attendees will learn more about compensation payments, the cost of labour arbitration and the neutrality of judges when disputes are escalated.
