This conference, organized by the In House Counsel Committee in conjunction with BCF Business Law, seeks to raise lawyers’ awareness of the importance of being well-informed about labour mobility rules of law. Whether to help businesses attract global talent or deploy their own manpower abroad, mastering the general concepts of immigration law has become an essential skill that is too often undervalued.

In the case of drafting extraterritorial service contracts or buying a business or reorganizing it, due diligence work regarding the compliance and possible impacts on the validity of worker status is critical. In addition to specific immigration rules, a number of questions have been raised concerning the protection of confidential information during searches conducted at airports and other inspection points, which will also be discussed.

In particular, the following subjects will be presented by using concrete examples:

  • The flow of services worldwide and the importance of certain clauses in drafting service contracts
  • Major considerations in establishing a business model: setting up a subsidiary and its impact on sales personnel mobility
  • Legal, strategic and tactical strategies to attract and keep global talent
  • Increasing number of audits and inspections regarding foreign workers; what are the risks to which non-compliant employers are exposed?
  • Employers’ duty of care to business travellers and other mobile workers
  • The impact of restructuring, mergers and acquisitions on the status of foreign workers; the importance of due diligence for immigration
  • New considerations: searches of electronic devices and the duty of confidentiality

Speaker : Mtre Julie Lessard, BCF Business Law
