UpcomingRemote Working: Best Practices and the Pitfalls


Allen & Overy in collaboration with AMCHAM, are pleased to invite you to attend our Remote working webinar,  taking place on Wednesday 28 April at 11am CET.  This unique webinar will end at 12:15pm.

Many lessons have been learned over the past year when it comes to remote working. The health crisis has had this positive side effect of spectacularly accelerating the development of this new way of working.

The time has now come for a first inventory: what are the best practices? what are the pitfalls to avoid?

From a legal perspective in general, and because of Luxembourg’s geographical position in particular, there is a tremendously broad and complex variety of topics to have on the radar. They include notably labour law, health & safety, data protection, social security, tax and regulatory aspects.

Many seminars have been organised on some of these topics, but very few have proposed a holistic view.

Our Employment, Tax, IP/IT and Regulatory experts will provide a unique cross-practice perspective and share with you their insights, not only on recent technical developments, but also on the latest market trends and practices.

This virtual event is designed for all professionals who directly or indirectly accompany their organisation’s transition to the future ways of working.

We hope you can join us at this event and we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 28 April.
