HR West 2013: Words Matter - Managing a Multi-National Workforce with a California Base

Program: 8:00am - 5:00pm
Location: Grand Sierra Resort

The HR West 2013 Conference is taking place April 22-24 at the Oakland Convention Center.  Attend Robert Fried's session on managing a multi-national workforce with a California base, where he will address how employment laws in other nations vary significantly from those in California. India, for example, does not recognize employment at will and mandates written employment agreements. Even in countries with a substantial English speaking population, common HR terms have dramatically different meanings. For example, an Indian national may request "leave," meaning they wish to take vacation. Develop a working dictionary to communicate clearly with multi-national employees.
