ABA International Labor & Employment Law Committee 2010 Midyear Meeting

Date(s) of Conference:

May 9-13, 2010


Swissôtel The Bosphorus
Istanbul, Turkey


The Committee will be holding a number of panels on cutting edge issues that will be of interest to any management, employee or union lawyer, no matter where they practice. The panels at this meeting will explore hot topics in EU labor law; the UN report on the effect of corporate social responsibility codes on labor practices in Turkey and its implications for multinationals; cross-border labor issues governing the use of migrant workers and the transfer of executives in the Middle East; an evaluation of the labor standards contained in various trade agreements entered into by the U.S. and European countries with countries in the Middle East and elsewhere; an evaluation of the green jobs revolution on environmental, labor and supplier interests; and labor and employment law practice in Turkey and also in other nations (including a linkage to related subjects to be covered in our 2011 planned Berlin meeting). The meeting also will set aside some time to obtain the perspectives of representatives from the media, NGO’s and government officials on some of these topics. The above list represents only a sampling of the type of issues that will be covered.
