Labor disputes are, unfortunately, on the rise. Authorities attempted a major reform, where individual disputes would no longer be admitted to the the Labor Arbitration system. But how did this work out? Are the Myanmar courts back in business when it comes to employment disputes? In this unique workshop hosted by VDB Loi, the next edition in our sought after series of labor issues seminars, our experts share their practical experience with employment disputes, actual cases and update you on the newest compliance requirements.
