On September 18th, we co-hosted our second Labour & Employment Global Law Forum in collaboration with Herzog, Fox & Neeman (HFN) and the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) in HFN’s conference center in Tel Aviv. The program focused on crucial insights in employment and labour law issues in Israel and around the globe. Moria Tam-Harshoshanim, a labour and employment partner at HFN, gave a presentation on Israeli labour law, employment relations and compliance, followed by a global perspective presented by our DLA Piper colleagues.
Kai Bodenstedt, a partner in our Hamburg office and head of the German Employment group, discussed trends in German employment law specific to the rise of atypical workers and the growing gig economy; Bijan Eghbal, a partner in our Paris office, examined the new Macron Labor reform; and Vinita Arora, a partner in our London office, focused on the transformation of the contemporary labor market due to more dynamic working arrangements, the rise of the digital economy, and the emergence of the non-standard work models.
The event concluded with an informative client panel focused on critical issues affecting multinational Israeli companies. Panelists included: Ganit Ashkenazi, Senior Director and Legal Counsel at Marvell Israel; Anat Assaf, Vice President of Human Resources at Gett; Ilana Berman Nir, Employment Legal Counsel at Varonis; and Maayan Yaakobovich, Attorney at EL AL Israel Airlines. The panel was moderated by Abigail Borowitz, a labour and employment partner at HFN. Over 50 in-house legal counsel from a wide range of Israeli and multinational companies were in attendance for the successful event.
