Multinationals increasingly align certain aspects of compensation and benefits across borders (think of global executive rewards, regional sales incentive programs, broad-based global incentives/bonuses, global equity plans). In the scramble to launch cutting-edge cross-border rewards offerings, though, too many multinationals overlook foreign discrimination laws. This might surprise American H.R. -- after all, U.S. employers boast the world's most robust discrimination-law compliance strategies. But foreign discrimination laws differ so much that U.S.-honed compliance tools are like U.S. electrical appliances with U.S. plugs: Abroad, they just don't work without an adapter.
Foreign discrimination laws feature their own local protected groups and deemphasize both Title VII-style adverse impact testing and ERISA-style compensation discrimination testing. Instead, other countries impose unexpected rules on "job category pay discrimination," "local citizenship discrimination," "age discrimination against the young" and even "comparable worth/equal value" long ago rejected stateside.
This webinar offers practical strategies for how a multinational can design cross-border compensation/benefits offerings that comply with discrimination laws worldwide.
Develop strategies for crafting regional and global rewards offerings that align across borders, complying with multiple jurisdictions' laws simultaneously.
