Latin America: Employment Law and HR Obligations


After two difficult years, Latin American economies are poised for growth again in 2017. Not surprisingly, many US investors are looking to these promising markets as possible expansion targets.  If you’re considering hiring in a Latin American country, or even just sending employees there on expat assignments, you need to understand local HR and employer obligations, which can be complex and quite different from their US counterparts. Understanding your obligations in advance will allow you to set realistic budgets, minimize your risks and maximize your advantages.

During this broadcast, Pauline will discuss:

  • How to mitigate key operational risk exposures
  • Data protection considerations
  • Planning for employee benefits and pensions
  • Key issues and trends for employee leave
  • Employment contracts and terminations
  • Language requirements
