The importance of understanding employment law, both for employers and employees, can never be emphasized enough. There are statutes and regulations in place which, if not followed, may lead to severe consequences for the violating party. To help employers and employees avoid potentially costly legal ramifications, partner Michael K. Lee and attorney-at-law Huong Thi Thanh Nguyen have coauthored the Vietnam chapter of How to Hire and Fire (3rd Edition), published by Multilaw. The chapter covers topics such as requirements for hiring agreements, changing employment contracts, accidents at work, maternity and disability leave, unions, dismissal, resignation, severance pay, and more.
Multilaw is a multinational association of independent law firms encompassing over 8000 lawyers in 150 commercial centers around the world. In addition to the Vietnam chapter, attorneys from Tilleke & Gibbins were also responsible for writing the Thailand chapter of the publication.
