For employers - meeting your duty of care for valued executives and their families

In today's globalized world, experienced executives often embark on international assignments, accompanied by their families. However, if personal relationships falter and children are involved, the consequences can be devastating. The unfortunate reality is that if these valued executives become entangled in Hague Convention litigation, they face the prospect of being embroiled in an arduous international legal battle that may persist for months or even years. The financial burden of such a legal ordeal is immense, potentially climbing into the tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds, euros or dollars.

Beyond the financial strain, the toll on the employee's overall well-being, both mental and physical, is immeasurable. Prolonged litigation and uncertainty can create immense stress and anxiety, impacting their ability to lead effectively and excel in their professional roles.

Regrettably, there is a scarcity of accessible information about the potential dangers involved in relocating between countries with children and hardly any advance warning of a Hague Convention case. As a result, many families find themselves ill-prepared to navigate the complexities of the legal system, leading to unnecessary trauma and upheaval.

At Hague Explained CIC, we recognise this critical issue and are dedicated to providing a solution. Our expert-led workshops and awareness campaigns aim to equip multinational corporations and their employees with vital knowledge about the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction. By fostering proactive education and prevention, we aspire to protect families from the devastating consequences of Hague cases and ensure they can make informed decisions before it's too late. Together, let us empower your global workforce with the understanding they need to thrive, both personally and professionally, in an interconnected world.
