This fourth edition once again includes several general-interest chapters – one addressing employment issues in cross-border mergers and acquisitions, one addressing social media in the workplace, and another addressing global diversity initiatives.

This edition also boasts the addition of five new countries, bringing the number of covered jurisdictions to 52.
