New Protection of Personal Data EU Regulation: Impact on HR Management?

Breakfast Seminars | 21,25,27 and 28 October 2016 | 8:30 am CET

Regulation (EU) 2016/679 regarding the protection of personal data was adopted on 27 April 2016. This regulation will become fully applicable in all Member States from 25 May 2018, after a 2-year transitional period.

This regulation fundamentally changes the legal framework with respect to the protection of personal data in Europe. This regulation, which will replace the Personal Data Protection Act of 8 December 1992 in Belgium, will have very concrete implications on daily human resources management.

Laga’s breakfast seminars aim to highlight these implications.

Control of executive remuneration by shareholders: Where are we today and what’s next?

Webinar | Dbriefs Legal | 30 November 2016 | 12:00 pm CET

Host: Antoine Larcena / Emilie Colly

Presenters: Anne-Sophie Blouin, Manuel Fernandez Condearena, and Alberto Gallarati

Executive remuneration has made the headlines in a number of countries over the past few years and further legislation may be under way in France and the UK where annual binding vote is now being considered. What do these trends mean for other European companies and their executives? With a special focus on the UK, France, Italy, and Spain, and comparison with other Northern-European countries, we’ll discuss:

  • Trends related to executive officers’ salary regulations.
  • The rights of the general shareholders’ meeting to obtain information on executives’ remunerations and to approve such remunerations.
  • Regulations on various types of companies including SMEs, listed companies, etc.
  • The UK has had an advisory vote on executive annual remuneration for nearly fifteen years and a binding vote on policy since 2013. We will discuss the impact so far and what other European countries may want to consider ahead of the implementation of the European Shareholders Rights directive which will give shareholders a say on pay in a way similar to the UK’s.

Learn from our experts on the constraints and good practices concerning executive officers remunerations in Europe.
