Employment

Overview


With lawyers in the United States, Europe and Asia, along with a broad network of professional advisors worldwide, we help clients attract and retain workers at every level, enter and exit markets as business conditions warrant, develop and implement effective employment policies, identify and protect trade secrets and other confidential information, and negotiate and enforce a range of employment contracts.

In the United States, we help employers ensure compliance with relevant legislation such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, as well as related national, state, and local legislation and ordinances wherever our clients do business.

  • A China-listed company in a prolonged labor dispute involving allegedly insufficient social insurance contributions and wage arrears; the matter had proceeded from arbitration to the Intermediary People’s Court, where MWE China lawyers persuaded the court to exclude the social insurance benefits issue from the judgment, reject the claim on wage arrears and decide in favor of the company
