The programme

The briefings will cover the following 'need to know' topics across the employment lifecycle, looking at the differences and similarities country to country:

Recruiting and hiring
- Non-discriminatory recruitment
- The different types of employment (further notice, probationary period, fixed term, temporary substitute etc.)

Particulars during the course of employment
- Collective bargaining agreements and the obligation to negotiate 
- Benefits (incl. bonuses) 
- Disciplinary measures
- Transfer of undertakings

Dismissal
- Dismissals due to redundancy
- Dismissals due to "personal reasons" (performance etc.)
- Benefits during notice period

We hope the briefings will be highly relevant, informative and interactive, as we would very much like to hear your views and experiences as part of the discussion.
