European Employment Law Update 2018 Edition 

by Katie Russell

Published: January, 2018

Submission: January, 2018


2017 has seen immense changes to employment law throughout Europe, and the coming year looks to bring more of the same. The 2018 edition of our annual Employment Law Update aims to assist organisations with a pan-European presence in keeping up to date with
changes to legislation and best practice.

A total of 31 leading law firms across the continent have collaborated to create this guide, summarising recent amendments to labour laws across Europe and highlighting key anticipated reforms.

This year, a key theme is variety, with many jurisdictions making a number of incremental changes to their practices and procedures. Many countries are grappling with the ‘gig economy’ and how to protect individuals from being exploited by companies who try to avoid the usual employee or worker protections. A common theme throughout is preparation for the General Data Protection Regulation in May 2018, which will have an enormous impact, particularly on Human Resources departments processing large quantities of employees’ personal and sensitive data. We also continue to see increases to family leave provisions in many countries, and some further protection for whistleblowers has been introduced in a few jurisdictions.

Contact details for all of the contributor firms are provided within the guide, so please get in touch if you have any questions.
