Very few legal fields face the revolutionary changes that Employment and Industrial relations laws do. Issues such as Technology, Human rights, Globalization, Corporate Citizenship and increased movements of people have created unprecedented legal complexity as they interact with traditional laws often formulated decades ago. As the largest of the Human Resource Section Committees of the IBA, the purpose of the Committee is the identification, technical analysis and proactive management of national, regional and global developments in these rapidly evolving fields. The Committee takes a “cutting edge” approach to its selection of topics and speakers and draws upon the combined experience of its officers and panelists to present the members with innovative solutions to the employment law problems of today.
Additionally, the Employment and Industrial Relations Law Committee works with the following committees to form the Human Resources Section:
The Human Resources Section Board was established in 2014 in order to coordinate activities and join efforts within the Section. Board members consist of the current and immediate past Chairs of each of the committees in the Section.
