Japanese-owned companies operating in the United States are subject to an increasingly complex array of laws and regulations governing the workplace. This seminar covers key developments in labor and employment law, employee benefits law, and business immigration law, and addresses steps that Japanese companies in the U.S. can take to avoid or defeat costly employee workplace law claims. New legal challenges include Sarbanes-Oxley and other whistleblowing claims, Homeland Security issues, COBRA regulations, revised overtime pay rules, workplace investigation notice obligations, and recent decisions on sexual harassment, dishonest executives, discrimination, retaliation, restrictive covenants and trade secrets.
