Al Tamimi and Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) jointly hosted an employment law workshop at Al Tamimi’s Abu Dhabi office on 21 November 2013. The continuing relationship, which has been developed by Head of Abu Dhabi office Stephen Forster and Senior Associate Jongeun (Christina) Lee between KOTRA and Al Tamimi & Company, made the event possible.
Senior Associate Ivor McGettigan from Al Tamimi’s Employment team gave a presentation in the workshop that was attended by over 40 Korean clients of all sectors of industry and provided an overview of the UAE employment law with an extended question and answer format which led to good audience participation and lively engagement. A wide range of topics from recruitment to retirement were discussed with particular emphasis on latest developments in the UAE and best practice. KOTRA also gave a brief introduction about their global initiatives supporting Korean companies.
The KOTRA / Al Tamimi workshop will be held regularly in the following months and will be focusing on topics that are relevant to Korean companies in the region.
