What users are saying

  • GENIE is an essential tool for me and my team. We support our business across the 37 countries in EMEA and are often asked for recommendations on how to address difficult and urgent employment law issues under tight timescales. GENIE gives us some ‘air cover’ by providing the headline issues to think about and directing us on which questions to ask. We can then decide whether we need more detailed specialist advice.

  • I find GENIE useful as a quick check on the basic information like notice periods, severance etc. I also like the country comparison tool and the newsfeed.

    Legal Counsel, Consumer Electronics sector

  • Our in-house team advises across 55 countries and we are often asked to provide initial guidance on comparative approaches to employment law matters in the markets we operate in, which is why GENIE is such a useful tool as it allows us to review topics across multiple jurisdictions in a clear and concise format.
