The parties to an international contract of employment may, in the course of its performance, decide to make it subject to the law of a different country or relocate to another country the place where it is performed. A court having to settle any dispute that arises thereafter will first have to determine the (new) law applicable to the contract. In such situations the Rome Convention of 19 June 1980 offers a much-needed framework for assessing the validity of a choice of law or the implications of relocation for the contract's legal regime with due regard to the parties' interests.
