Past EventsThe Future is now - Challenges to Labour and Social Security Law
The Swiss Section of the ISLSSL was holding its third scientific conference to accompany the annual General Assembly on March 17th, 2023. The omnipresent crises – war, energy, climate, pandemic – are preoccupying politics and the public and also have an impact on labour and social security law. In the context of this conference, we wanted to address some central challenges to the design of labour and social security law, detached from the urgency of immediate solutions.

ISLSSL Conference: Cross-border employment relationships - labour, migratin and social security law issues
On March 29, 2022 the Swiss Section of the International Society for Labour and Social Security Law (ISLSSL) has organized a Conference on "Cross-border emplayment relationships - labour, migration and social security law issues" at the University of Berne. The topic of cross-border employment relations touches upon several legal systems and requires a discussion of migration, labour and social security law issues. The applicable Private International Law (IPL) provides rules on jurisdiction, applicable law and enforcement. National IPL laws are overridden by international IPL treaties (such as the Lugano Convention).
