Latin Lawyer’s 4th annual labour and employment conference, which will be held at the W Hotel in Miami on 26 September, will include panels on the ‘gig economy’, whistleblowers and privacy issues, among other topics.
The conference is chaired by Anthony Oncidi of Proskauer Rose LLP and Enrique Stile of Marval, O'Farrell & Mairal. The conference speakers will be announced shortly.
The first of five panels will give delegates a timely and topical update of labour legislation in Latin America, drawing on the major labour reforms that have taken place in the region.
A second panel will focus on workplace technology and privacy issues. Against the backdrop of the increasing digitalisation of the working world, it has never been more important for companies to have the right policies and systems in place.
The third panel will debate how employers and legal counsel can address gender discrimination in the workplace.
After a networking lunch, a panel will explore the pros and cons of the ‘gig economy’ for Latin America and the Caribbean, where around 130 million workers are currently engaged in informal employment.
Corruption, compliance and whistleblowers are the subject of the final panel of the day, where panellists are set to discuss how to uncover and properly respond to corruption, how to screen contractors and suppliers, and how best to weather the storm if a problem arises.
The day will conclude with a cocktail reception kindly hosted by Marval, O'Farrell & Mairal.
