The world is facing another year of unprecedented change making uncertainty the new normal for global employers. We are watching geopolitical crises play out on the global stage with a global economic slowdown waiting in the wings. Global employers must navigate a course through this highly charged, shifting competitive landscape which is compounded by the challenges presented by increasing regulation, disruptive technologies and an intergenerational workforce which is transforming the world of work.

In this year’s edition of the Global Employer Magazine, we review the key themes and trends that dominated the employment law landscape in 2018 and provide guidance on what to watch out for in 2019.

We’re pleased to share Baker McKenzie’s US Employment & Compensation Law Digest 2018/2019. The Digest outlines recent developments in US law relevant to employers and provides insight on global trends in gender pay, #MeToo, business change, and the modern workforce. In short, it’s an invaluable resource for Canadian companies with operations in the US and/or internationally.
