Counseling Multinational Employees: Their Rights And Remedies Under US Law
This article by Outten & Golden partner Wendi S. Lazar sketches a map through the convoluted terrain of representing multinational and expatriate employees. Simply determining whether there may be a cause of action can require careful parsing of the laws of multiple jurisdictions and the employer's corporate structure as well as the usual inquiries into the employee's and employer's conduct and relevant contracts. Using a case study of one employee's circumstances and potential legal claims, Lazar outlines the important issues an attorney must resolve in order to best counsel a client.

This paper addresses negotiation approaches and dispute resolution procedures that are well-suited for dealing with the problems and disputes often encountered by employees and their counsel.
The opportunities are legion for problems and disputes to arise out of the employment relationship – during and after the period of employment, and involving non-legal as well as legal issues. Counsel for employees should, of course, be familiar with the legal issues that may arise and with the traditional legal procedures for addressing such legal issues. But familiarity with such legal matters is not enough. Counsel for employees should also be familiar with tactics, strategies, and methods for solving legal and non-legal problems and resolving disputes that do not necessarily depend on the assertion of legal rights and that do not necessarily employ formal legal procedures. This paper addresses negotiation approaches and dispute resolution procedures that are well-suited for dealing with the problems and disputes often encountered by employees and their counsel.
