Practice/Industry Group Overview

Through our international employment issues practice group, Jackson Lewis offers guidance, advice,  counsel and representation in matters affecting both domestic employers doing business abroad and foreign employers doing business in the United States.  Our practice is restricted to U. S. labor and employment law, and we provide services to U. S. corporations on expatriate employment issues from selection to repatriation, including employee benefits and extraterritorial application of U. S. employment laws; recruitment, hiring, management and termination of foreign-based employees and foreign nationals; global mobility of  high level executives; cross-border litigation of employment and labor issues; and NAFTA.  We also advise and counsel foreign employers doing business in the jurisdictions where U. S. employment and labor laws are controlling.  As we do not advise employers on matters of foreign law, an integral part of our practice area involves relationships with leading employment lawyers around the globe with whom we can coordinate services to meet clients' needs for representation and counsel on international laws.
