Kelley Drye’s Public International and Diplomatic Law team will organize a seminar for diplomatic missions accredited to Belgium, the EU and/or NATO, on recent legal developments concerning the employment of local staff. The concept of local staff and the applicable legal framework will be presented; building on that, specific issues will be analyzed, with a focus on recent guidelines from the Commission de Bons Offices (labour contracts, work rules, etc.), with a view to drawing the attention to possible pitfalls and misunderstandings. Recent trends concerning State immunity from jurisdiction in local staff employment matters will also be addressed briefly.

Panelists: Bert Theeuwes, Partner – Frédéric Dopagne, Special Counsel – Saskia Lemeire, Associate
