Getting updated on terminations at our HR knowledge clinic

Last week, Wolters Kluwer Singapore ran one of our knowledge clinics in Singapore, in the area of human resources, focusing specifically on terminations. We invited our Asia Pacific Employment Law Online subscribers to join us for the session, titled Managing Terminations of Employment in Asia.

Our speaker for the day was Fatim Jumabhoy from Herbert Smith Freehills. Her expertise and wealth of experience was evident throughout, not to mention her exceptional delivery of information.

She went through the legal requirements for disciplinary and dismissal handling when terminating employees across Asia, looking specifically at Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan and Korea. She also highlighted particular areas of concern that our attendees needed to be aware of, as well as discussing such topics as notice periods and severance payments.

Our attendees found the session very useful, and provided plenty of positive feedback, such as these: "It was one of the best seminars that I have attended lately.  We loved the energy and clarity that Fatim provided and her great wealth of practical knowledge!"

We at Wolters Kluwer are very well aware of the extremely challenging and constantly changing environment that today's HR personnel face. The human resource function - especially those of multi-national companies - continues to evolve rapidly, thanks to numerous developments such as the now common use of Centers of Excellence, the increasing use of automation to handle various HR processes and of course the various legal changes in your respective jurisdictions.

As such, we always look to help you out in whichever ways we can. Whether it's by organising events such as these, or by providing regularly updated HR content through our subscriptions such as our Asia Pacific Employment Law Online, we look forward to continuing to work with you in the ever evolving field of human resources,
