Overseas Workers: Employment without Borders
Robin Jeffcott and Dan Peyton (Richards Butler) have published the second instalment of their summary on "Overseas Workers: Employment without Borders" in the Employment Law Journal. Here's the abstract:
This, the second of a two part article, examines the legal issues which can arise where employees work in other jurisdictions as well as in the UK, considering the use of choice of law provisions in employment contracts, the jurisdiction of UK courts to hear breach of contract claims, jurisdiction governing employers' proceedings against overseas employees, and the protection of employers' business interests through the use of restrictive covenants and garden leave.
