Asia employment law bulletin 2020

 

Welcome to the 2020 edition of our Asia employment law bulletin.

Many commentators are saying that we are living in an era of disruption. These disruptive forces take many forms, including rapid geopolitical changes, technological advancements and cultural shifts. Employers are having to navigate these new challenges and find ways to adapt in order to build resilience and continue to grow.

In this year’s Freshfields Asia employment law bulletin, we have, with our StrongerTogether colleagues, looked back at 2019 to identify the significant areas of change in some of the key Asia Pacific jurisdictions and the way in which these disruptive forces have permeated employment law, employer policies and workplace culture in the region. We have also looked to the horizon, to spot the material changes companies in the region should anticipate, as well as the emerging trends we expect to play out in the coming year. 

Please do pick up the phone to your usual contacts or get in touch if you would like to discuss any of the issues covered in more detail.
