Event Description

Nowadays, most companies in Vietnam are well equipped to deal with day-to-day HR issues, whether it involves processes such as performance management, changes to workplace policies or standard dealings with the trade union, most companies are aware of how best to proceed. But what about a company’s preparedness to deal with an HR crisis that can severely impact its operations and overall security in Vietnam? For instance, how would the company deal with a senior employee who is refusing to return key materials and property, such as the company seal, upon termination? What about a situation whereby a court, who is considering an active matter, imposes an interim measure banning the company’s foreign senior management from leaving Vietnam? Or how would a company respond if employees suddenly exercise their prerogative to go on strike?

If you are a CEO, senior executive, manager, business leader or operating within the HR space, and have struggled with the above questions, please join us for an in-depth discussion about how a company can deal with these scenarios and other significant HR matters. Hang Nguyen, Head of the Employment and Labor Practice of Baker McKenzie Vietnam, will share her extensive experience of operating in this jurisdiction and provide some best practical tips that can help ensure your company is well prepared to deal with such critical circumstances.  Hang will also take this opportunity to update us on the latest developments of Vietnam employment and labor law, including the proposed revised Labor Code, the new Decree on labor sub-leasing and further guidance on the implementation of social insurance contribution for foreign employees.
