Works councils in multinational companies, and particularly members in European Works councils, increasingly have to deal with English-speaking company representatives. As fundamental decisions on employee interests and working conditions are involved, discussions and negotiations in such contexts are, in themselves, challenging. In order to properly fulfill the representation of employees in such English-speaking environments – e.g. during company restructuring processes – the ability to understand and discuss balance sheets, financial statements and annual reports might be just as important as knowledge of corporate and labour law.
