As the world becomes more interconnected, businesses have increasing needs for employees and contractors on the ground in many countries. Technology allows employees to do their job from anywhere in the world, even if their employer is in a different country. This seminar provides an introduction to issues that arise in cross-border employment relationships, pitfalls for employers to avoid, and solutions that employers can use when building a global workforce.

About CLE Credit

Attorneys who need credit should bring their state attorney ID number so that they can complete the necessary paperwork. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.

Note: Persons who are interested in the topic but who do not require CLE credits are most welcome to attend.
