German Labor Law and Leica
I'd like to improve my understanding of the ways in which German business and labor laws - and general cultural tradition - influence Leica's business plans and decisions. I do see complaints about, for example, the slow production rate of the M9 or availability of the X1/S2 (wondering why Leica does not just hire more workers, or closes shop for stock-taking in the face of huge demand). And I get the feeling that people from other "business cultures" just don't realize the rules and assumptions Leica works under. Here's what I think I know: Features of German Labor and Employment Law | WilmerHale Germany - ... market research, surveys and trends

Updated in February 2007 by Mr Leviter Lee, Cornell University, School of Industrial and Labour relations, USA, and Ms Angelika Muller, ILO. The United States is one of the few countries in the world that still embraces the employment at-will concept. Although, as elsewhere, a pure practice of this doctrine has been eroded somewhat by jurisprudence, it is still predominant, particularly when one compares it to employment security law in other Western and developed countries. Consequently, with the exceptions of the States of Arizona and Montana, [1] the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Working for justice
Antonella Gambotto-Burke profiles Michael Harmer, the legal crusader and philanthropist back in the spotlight with the David Jones sexual harassment allegations. IN court, he is known as The Undertaker. Few recall hearing him ever raise his voice; he speaks so softly that the judges who preside over his cases are forced to lean forward and ask him to speak up. During major cases, he sleeps one to two hours a night for weeks on end, seemingly without effect. His swift movement, preternaturally slender frame, dishevelled black chain-store suits and large, unblinking eyes intimidate without effort. Widely regarded as the best ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Emerging epidemic: Booming asbestos industry brings misery to India's millions
NEW DELHI -- Every day, the swirling waters of the Arabian Sea bring misery to Alang, the world's largest shipbreaking yard, in western India's Gujarat state. An estimated 55,000 workers, unmindful of the lethal effects of asbestos-laden material in the vessels, slave for long hours taking apart old ships and, in the process, are exposed to deadly fibers. The Indian government is aware of the risks but loath to interfere: The men need jobs, and India's economy, among the world's fastest-growing, needs secondary steel from the beached vessels. "Reclamation and recycling," said Pravin Nagarsheth, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

In your opinion, what is the future of human resources management ...
This region is working to become a true core piece of the world business community. RIght now we have money - notwithstanding the current downturn - and enthusiasm. What we do not have is a business culture commensurate to world standards. We rely heavily on cheap imported labour who we allow NO part of the long term future even if they devote the whole of their working lives to the region. We don't give them citizenship andwe don't let them stay on after they retire. And we treat them more as indentured servants than valuable parts of the business' future. And we generally do not encourage them to develop ...
