Managing the European Employment issues in an international transaction

We are delighted to invite you to our webinar Managing the European Employment issues in an international transaction taking place on Tuesday, 26 April 2022.

General Counsel, in house lawyers and HR professionals often have to project manage the employment issues that arise during an international business purchase. However, if a deal involves businesses in several different countries, project managers may not be familiar with the implications of local law for the deal as a whole. What is straightforward in one country can prove challenging in another and issues that come up unexpectedly can impact the timing of the whole sale and purchase. Our experience shows that this is particularly the case where deals involve European jurisdictions.

Our comparative guide to information and consultation on business sales will guide you through the key issues. You can also join our team for a panel discussion where we will address the questions you should consider before embarking on an international transaction and provide an overview of the “red flag” issues that can lead to delay. These will be equally relevant to those working for the buyer or the target organisation. Being aware of what those issues may be in advance allows project managers to plan for, even if they cannot fully pre-empt, potential difficulties. We’ll focus on the position in France, Germany, the Netherlands the UK and the US, identifying the practical ways in which the issues that arise most often can be addressed.

Which deal structures are likely to be more challenging from an employment perspective?

  • How much information does a buyer or seller have to provide to employees or their representatives and how long does employee consultation typically take?
  • Where are the sanctions for failing to inform and consult particularly problematic?
  • How do you deal with countries where employee information and consultation has to take place before a deal is signed?
  • Are there any particular pinch points to be aware of?

We hope you can join us.
