Doing Business in Russia? Be Careful, Stay Compliant
A webinar presented by Bill Wright titled “Russia and Ukraine: What Employers Need to Know and Do During Times of Crisis,” was highlighted in a Corporate Counsel article.
According to the article, The March 16 vote by residents of the Crimea region of Ukraine to join Russia has prompted some strong international responses. Russian President Vladimir Putin responded by signing a treaty that officially annexes Crimea. In the U.S. and the European Union, Russia’s actions have prompted travel bans and asset freezes on several Russian officials. It’s not only an international political crisis, but also an evolving business crisis for many companies.
The webinar offered insight on what companies with employees in these countries should do to protect themselves.
