2013 included a notable uptick in M&A activity – a welcome development after several relatively flat years in this area following the financial crisis. For this reason, we've opted to include once again a general-interest chapter in this book on addressing employment issues in cross-border mergers and acquisitions. It is our hope that this chapter, along with the relevant country-specific chapters, will aid practitioners and human resources professionals in conducting due diligence and providing other employment-related support in connection with cross-border M&A deals.
This year I have also experienced an increasing number of clients considering or revising their company’s social media and mobile device management policies, and have noted a particular increase in the number of organisations that are moving toward 'bring your own device' programmes. One of the general-interest chapters in this edition addresses issues for consideration by multinational employers in rolling out policies of this sort. This issue is particularly timely as more and more jurisdictions pass or are beginning to consider privacy legislation that places significant restrictions on the processing of employee personal data.
Finally, the third general-interest chapter addresses diversity initiatives (both legislative and corporate), as this issue continues to be a hot topic for global employers. In addition to these three general-interest chapters, the fifth edition of The Employment Law Review includes 50 country-specific chapters.
