We greatly reduce the risk of operating internationally

Every well-run multinational organisation requires a set of essential support services to ensure it stays in tune with its complex of differing business environments and compliant with both professional standards and national laws. That is the role of accountants, management consultants, training organisations, law firms and FedEE®.

FedEE® offers a unique, high quality service not available elsewhere. We overlap to some extent with other professional services, but no truly effective multinational HR department could function without us. That is why we were established 30 years ago – by HR professionals, for HR professionals.

Many companies operate with in-house legal counsel to provide first-line support on compliance issues and specific legal problems. FedEE®’s principal role is to act as an extension of this service – but specialising exclusively on employment law and related issues. We also own trademark rights to the exclusive title Qualified Professional HR Counsel (QP-HR Counsel®) that only graduates of our Advanced Diploma may use.

Our experience in dealing with legal matters for a wide range of multinational organisations also means that our member companies can gain the benefit of our seasoned expertise. We also back up our guidance with a comprehensive knowledgebase covering 60+ jurisdictions that can be consulted on a 24/7 basis.

FedEE® therefore fills the gap between in-house resources and conventional external resources. We provide timely, first line support whenever you need to resolve an HR issue or wish for a reliable second opinion. Our knowledgebase is packed with employment law data, statistics, guidance notes, public holiday dates from around the world, pay projections, minimum wage rates and cost of living information – all backed up by a Worldwide legal helpline. We also have a proprietary job pricing system and monitor worldwide developments for our comprehensive fortnightly newswire. Senior HR professionals have the opportunity to network through our Fellows’ Meetings, may meet-up online or face-to-face through our ButN® forum and participate in our legal briefings and training courses.

Travel Warnings

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the significant risk of abduction and deception by taxi or even private hire services, the best practice for companies sending executives or professionals to countries where they do not have representatives is to arrange for a registered guide to meet visitors at airports or rail stations. This will add to the visit cost, but in some locations the daily cost of a guide can be relatively low. To secure a guide, we suggest that only those registered with a national association affiliated to the WFTGA be used. Official guide costs can range from US$18 in Indonesia, US$32 in India and US$52 in Columbia to US$137 in Prague, US$363 in Munich and US$369 in Tokyo. Airport pick-ups are a normal part of a guide’s service and many will also offer interpretation and secretarial assistance.

At least 88 people have died and 976 others have tested positive for H1N1 influenza so far this year.

Hiring & Firing

In most countries the hiring process is less problematic than the termination of an employee. However, recruitment is also fraught with dangers – particularly with regard to potential discrimination. For example, increasingly across the USA employers may not ask a candidate their previous salary on gender equality grounds. In Canada unions frequently have a tight grip on who is hired – especially in the public sector – and have a Supreme Court ruling favouring the mandatory payment of union dues wherever there is a collective agreement. The types of contracts that may be used when hiring employees also differ enormously around the world

At every level and location pitfalls remain – for instance:

In France all documentation – including the employment contract – must be written in French.

In Slovakia all job adverts must include a basic pay rate and this must be honoured when making a job offer.

In China a new employer could find themselves responsible for unmet obligations from a previous employer.

Under the UK’s Equality act 2010 job protection rights for pregnant workers commence on the first day of a woman’s pregnancy – long before even she knows she’s pregnant.

In the USA it is important to determine if a new employee is “exempt” or “non-exempt” under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

In Singapore it is an offence that may be punishable by flogging (caning) if a manager hires an immigrant worker without the correct papers or even just organises their transportation.

Latest News

SOUTH AFRICA: A number of legal changes have recently taken effect. Of importance to foreign employees working in the country is the requirement for them to contribute to the Unemployment Insurance Contributions Fund. They may also now benefit from this fund when they lose their job. Although the national assembly voted for the widescale introduction of parental leave of 10 days, adoption leave of 10 weeks, and commissioning leave (for surrogate mothers), at the end of last year implementation of the new benefits awaits other legal amendments to accommodate them. Finally, changes to provident funds from March 2019 will bring them in line with pension funds to give retired workers a guaranteed annuity as well as a lump sum payment.

SAUDI ARABIA: The Kingdom’s principal advisory body, the Shura Council, has agreed to introduce a new law banning sexual harassment and introduce a penalty for infringement amounting to a prison term of up to 5 years and a fine of 300,000 riyals ($80,000). The female driving ban ends on the 24th of June and mixed-gender cinemas are now being allowed. However, at the same time – and to the astonishment of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights – the most prominent activists for women’s rights are being arrested and accused of being traitors to the state. Therefore, perhaps these reforms are being made far more reluctantly than the self-styled “progressive” Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, would like to admit.

KENYA: A proposed amendment to the Labour Relations Act before parliament requires that where a dispute involves essential services such as healthcare, telecommunication, ports, fuel distribution, and the energy sector, then adequate notice of strike action should be given and cover must be arranged so that there is no threat to the “preservation of life, health of the population and property”.

Working Time & Leave

Less than half the world’s working population are in paid formal employment. For those with bone fide jobs working time is normally restricted with a maximum working week, rest breaks during the day and extended rest breaks both between work shifts and at least for one day per week. Annual leave varies considerably, as too do public holidays.

Cambodia has the largest number of public holidays in the World – totalling 28 days.

The USA is one of only 7 countries in the world not to offer paid maternity leave at a national level.

In Kenya night workers who work overtime, plus time during normal daily hours must not exceed 144 hours in total during any two-week consecutive period (ie: An average of 72 hours a week).

If an employee is certified by a doctor as unwell in Indonesia their employer cannot dismiss them whilst they are absent for the first 12 months. They must pay 100% of their salary for the first 4 months – reducing to 50% after 8 months. When dismissed, their generous severance pay entitlement and other compensations are doubled. However, if an employee is absent for five continuous days without due certification they may be dismissed – but still with standard severance and compensation.

Latest News

CANADA: Although technically possible for some time, it is only now that responsibility for the health and safety of temporary agency workers has been firmly laid at the door of user companies. Amendments to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act (WSIA) means that insurance coverage will have to extend to such workers. However, there are exceptions for schedule 2 self-insured workers and those on MAP, NEER, and CAD programmes.

MEXICO: According to the National Commission of Human Rights (CNDH), only around half of all those employed in Mexico are covered by work-related healthcare services. Latest figures from the Mexican Institute of Social Security – relating to 2016 – indicate there were 1,408 officially recorded deaths at work annually, but over 1,402,445 accidents and 335,719 occupational diseases. There is a strong framework for health and safety in the workplace provided though the state constitution, labour and social security laws, and ministerial guidelines – however few of these have any significant or widespread effect, especially in respect to the country’s 30 million informal workers.

USA: Maryland has introduced a new law to prevent employers from creating policies or agreements that curtail an employee’s right to pursue a harassment claim. Employers with 50+ employees will also be required to participate in two state-wide surveys on the 1st of July 2020 and 2022. These will collect data on the monetary compensation paid and other settlements in respect to this offence.

Discrimination & #Metoo

In all societies discrimination exists against certain groups, or individuals suffer harassment because they possess particular personal characteristics. Laws seek to remove the harmful effects of prejudice and the threat of harassment, but seldom have any impact on the root causes of mistreatment.

Countries vary greatly in the protection offered to disabled workers, most – except Botswana and three other African nations – have signed or ratified the UN Convention and protocol on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The USA and Irish Republic have only signed, but not ratified the convention.

#Metoo has had a big impact on the USA and many other countries around the world – but not in Italy, China, Japan and across the middle-east.

In Argentina anyone has the right to switch genders without giving proof. This has already led to a case of a man claiming a retirement pension early by claiming he was a woman.

Same gender sexual relations are punishable by the death penalty in ten countries, including Iran, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

The Sindh Assembly in Pakistan passed the Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities Bill into law during May 2018.

The reversal of the burden of proof for discrimination cases in courts located across the EU defies the principle of natural justice and leaves companies highly exposed to unjustified claims.

Latest News

CHINA: According to the latest statistics from the Social Security Management Service Bureau of Hunan Province, in 2017 the monthly basic old-age pension received by enterprise retirees in Hunan province was 2,270 yuan (US$355). Currently, China’s retirement age is 60 for men, 55 for female white-collar workers, and 50 for female blue- collar employees.

HONG KONG: : The Commissioner for Labour has issued a 206-page Code of Practice for employment agencies. Agencies are heavily regulated and must possess a detailed operating licence or official certificate of exemption. The new Code has statutory status and failure to comply with it could result in a maximum fine of $350,000, imprisonment for 3 years, and revocation or refusal of an operating licence. Employers in Hong Kong that utilise such services should ensure that they monitor agencies in line with the Code in order to avoid any vicarious liability arising from non-compliance.

NEW ZEALAND: The Justice Select Committee is currently considering the Arbitration Amendment Bill. In a draft of the Bill, Clause 5 contains a provision that would remove the need for arbitration hearings to be made in public. However, the Ministry of Justice has proposed that Clause 5 is taken out of the Bill. Currently, New Zealand is an unattractive location to companies seeking international arbitrations in the Asia-Pacific region, therefore many cases are directed to Singapore or Hong Kong where confidentiality is assured.

Reward & Labour Relations

Pay levels and differentials have a huge impact on living standards and incentives. Many countries offer minimum wage safety nets, but these can sometimes be lower than the effective subsistence level. Attempts by countries such as the UK and Germany to make public gender pay differences have not had any significant impact on pay equalities.

In Belgium 54% of an average single person’s gross employment income is deducted to pay for tax and social security.

The highest level of income inequality in OECD countries can be found in South Africa and the lowest level of inequality in Iceland.

Labour productivity measured in terms of Unit labour Costs per person employed across the OECD varies from Turkey – easily the most productive to Finland and Spain – the least productive.

Hourly manufacturing wages in China now exceed those in all but one major Latin American country and eight eastern European countries.

Article 153 (5) of the European Union (EU) Treaty prevents the issuing of Directives that apply to “pay, the right of association, the right to strike or the right to impose lock-outs”. This has been ignored by the EU institutions that continue to introduce measures relating, in particular, to pay – such as the latest Posting of Workers amendments.


Latest News

ECJ: The Irish High Court has referred 11 questions, about international transfers of personal data, to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) – including whether the existing “Privacy Shield” agreement is valid. Although the case was brought by one Austrian privacy campaigner, the ECJ case will probably be opposed by 69 legal teams. The court’s decision is by no means a foregone conclusion and its ruling could significantly undermine the recently implemented GDPR.

FRANCE: The new French Data Protection Law implementing the GDPR had not been adopted for even a day before it was referred to the Constitutional Court by a large body of Senators for review. In the absence of a modified French law, employers should refer directly to the GDPR for guidance. Be very wary, in any case, of the French Data Protection Supervisory Body – the CNIL – as even before the GDPR the organisation “did not take prisoners” and now armed with a more powerful regulation, they could make life even more difficult for employers.

EU: In spite of open borders, just 3.8% of EU citizens aged 20–64 worked last year in another EU state. This was, however, up from 2.5% 10 years ago. In terms of the percentage of the home population, the most mobile workers were from Romania (19.7%), Lithuania (15%) and Croatia (14%), and the least mobile from Germany (1%), the UK (1.1%), and Sweden and France (1.3%). The biggest factor associated with French and German citizens working elsewhere in the EU is education, with 62.5% of French mobile workers having had tertiary education.
