Professor Cabrelli Japan

Last month, Professor David Cabrelli attended a symposium in Tokyo, Japan on 'Analysing the system of modification and termination of labour contracts and dispute resolution in the UK and France: A Comparison with Japan'. Professor Cabrelli was invited to deliver the keynote address at the symposium, in which he explained the UK rules governing the calculation of compensation payable to employees who are unfairly dismissed to Japanese colleagues. 

Alongside this appearance, Professor Cabrelli was also invited to attend the Japanese Government's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Tokyo in order to provide advice on the UK legal position. The Japanese Government Ministry are currently exploring the possibility of reforming the laws regulating the dismissals of employees in Japanese law and whether it could ape some of the provisions in UK law on the calculation of compensation.
