About the Committee

The International Bar Association Global Employment Institute (IBA GEI) was formed in early 2010 for the purpose of developing a global and strategic approach to the main legal issues in the human resources and human capital fields for multinationals and worldwide institutions.
 
The IBA GEI works with the Employment and Industrial Relations Law Committee, the Discrimination and Equality Law Committee and the Immigration and Nationality Law Committee to form the Human Resources Section.
 
Drawing on the wealth and resource of the IBA membership, the IBA GEI's skilled, dedicated and experienced members provide a unique employment, discrimination and immigration law contribution to private and public organisations throughout the world on a diverse range of global issues. This is designed to enhance the management, performance and productivity of those organisations and to achieve best practice in their human capital and management functions in a strategic perspective.
 

IBA GEI’s activities include:

  • Reports on global and strategic HR legal issues;
  • Reports on the impact of market and business trends on international HR legal practice;
  • Research and analysis on key issues affecting management and human capital functions within multinationals;
  • Strategic commentary and opinions on discrete areas of employment, discrimination and immigration practice and their relevance to current business trends;
  • Providing commentary to proposed new or reformed government legislation on major HR legal issues;
  • Commentary and analysis on strategic management and HR legal issues affecting certain globalised industries and market sectors;
  • Training and education of HR professionals and managers on strategic and global HR issues; 
  • Together with the IBA’s Employment and Industrial Relations Law, Discrimination Law, and Immmigration and Nationality Law Committees, organising conference sessions on global and strategic employment and HR legal issues of topical interest. 
 
The IBA Global Employment Institute is becoming the leading voice and authority on global HR issues by virtue of having a number of the world's leading labour and employment practitioners in its ranks, and the support and resource of the world's largest association of international lawyers.
