Tel Aviv, Israel

Ms. Fryszman's panel topic was The Long Arm of the Law: Extra-Territorial Application of Labor and Employment Law:
Multinational employers and unions face particular challenges in reconciling the dictates of labor and employment laws across borders. In this program, speakers will consider case studies including professional sports leagues in North America and also in the airline industry, where Homeland Security regulations impact all who fly into the United States. The panelists also will review implications of decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court including Spector v. Norwegian Cruise Line Ltd. and Daimler AG v. Baumanand their effect on human rights. Our panel will discuss these cases as well as the broader principles of extra-territorial application of law with particular emphasis on the role of arbitration and cross-border enforcement.
