About Us

International Employment Lawyer (IEL) is an independent information service dedicated to delivering timely reporting, data, and analysis of the latest trends and developments in the management of multinational organisations’ workforces.

Steered by an editorial board of leading cross-border employment lawyers, our complimentary daily news briefing provides in-house counsel, private practitioners, HR professionals, and c-suite readers with breaking news and insight into the business, legal, and compliance challenges facing employers nationally, regionally, and globally.

From the impact of the covid-19 pandemic, modern slavery or supply chain concerns, to the emerging risks of algorithmic decision-making or diversity and inclusion issues, and everything else in between, IEL has got you covered. Stay informed with our exclusive articles, in-person conferences, surveys, online webinars, workflow tools and – coming soon – our inaugural global benchmarking guide.


IEL conferences offer first-class networking opportunities by bringing together market-leading in-house counsel and private practitioners to discuss the big issues keeping multinational employers awake at night.


Our live online webinars from top employment law experts cover key topics impacting workforces worldwide, and are available to view at any time afterwards.

Workflow tools

IEL’s workflow tool allows multinational employers to explore, keep track of and compare key legal and compliance considerations across jurisdictions – and build reports tailored to their needs.


Our bi-annual thought-leadership surveys recognise leading in-house and private practice experts, who offer insight on emerging issues and the biggest challenges facing workforces today.

Coming soon: Benchmarking Guide

IEL is launching its first annual benchmarking project in autumn 2022. Based on in-depth research into the world’s leading employment law practices, the guide will offer a comprehensive overview of the global employment law market to assist in-house counsel in choosing the right expertise for cross-jurisdictional and country-specific issues.
