CMS On Your Radar - Key employment issues worldwide
May 22, 2023
Welcome to the latest edition of On Your Radar.
Increasing the state pension age became a significant issue in France which led to protests across the country. Our colleagues in France discuss the employment aspects of these reforms. Pension reform is also covered by Colombia where changes are being proposed to make pensions more inclusive and sustainable, and Turkey has passed a law removing the minimum retirement age for certain employees.
Working time also features in this edition; a recent case in Hong Kong explores whether a standby day is a rest day. Germany discusses a draft bill which (if passed) will introduce a requirement that employers must electronically record the working time of their employees. In Chile, a bill has been approved that will reduce the limit on weekly working hours from 45 to 40.
The growth in remote working legislation has been a key theme in On your radar in the last few years. In this edition Peru outlines changes to the law on telework, and in Poland a new law on remote working introduces new obligations on employers including the requirement to pay for electricity and internet costs for working remotely.
And finally, Spain and Switzerland discuss recent case law involving dismissals in their country. A reminder that when it comes to complex dismissals local advice on the different requirements and financial exposure is a necessary step.
