Put your company in the best position to compete for talent and ensure success in the US. Employee engagement is one of your company’s keys success factors. Regardless of the country, engaged employees are those who are confident their employers are compensating them fairly and treating them in accordance with the laws and regulations of the land.
This seminar was a lively discussion and a valuable ‘compare and contrast’ between major employment law concepts in the US and their Danish counterparts. Turn the differences between employment laws and expectations in both countries into a competitive advantage for your company.
Join DABF and our panel of US and Danish legal experts to get sharp on the US law and learn about the successes – and mistakes – made by Danish companies in recruiting, hiring and retaining talent in the US.
We’ll cover topics such as:
• Employment At-Will
• Employment Discrimination
• Salary / Incentive Structures – Benchmark
• Statutory Insurance Requirements
• PTO, FMLA, Unemployment and Medical Benefits
• Whistleblower Laws and Protections
• Restrictive Covenants, Severance and Separation Agreements
