A Year of Disruption – Emerging Issues in Employment Law and Education, and What They Mean for HR and Global Mobility

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected all aspects of our world, none more than the worlds of business and education and, as a result, law.  As businesses scramble to support their employees around the world, they must navigate new requests, new concerns, and endless new questions posed by their workforce.  In response, they must remain nimble and have suitable policies in place to protect themselves and their employees in all scenarios, always remembering that they are setting precedents in unprecedented times.  In this webinar, Elizabeth Sawyer, CEO of Bennett International Education Consultancy will discuss how changes in the global education landscape have led to unprecedented challenges for international assignees and, consequently, unprecedented requests of their employers; she will also give suggestions of things for  Global Mobility and HR  to consider as they strive to adapt education benefits policies for their employees.  Fisher Phillips LLP will provide an overview of the complex issues facing employment law and how it is responding in an effort  to be a compass in a shifting landscape of questions and challenges. William D. Wright, Partner, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Metro will moderate the session.
