06:00 am London - 06:00 am London

Employers operating outside the U.S. face increasing challenges as countries around the world tighten employment and immigration laws governing third-country nationals who are conducting business and working within their borders. We will address the myriad laws and policies companies should consider to avoid costly pitfalls with global assignments and business trips. We will also offer best practices to address the top ten global employment and immigration issues, including:

  • Starting operations in a new country

  • Business trips - avoiding the "Accidental Ex-Pat" syndrome

  • Ex-Pat employment contracts

  • Visas and work permits

  • Quota restrictions

  • Employee leasing and other global employment arrangements

  • Tax and benefits issues

  • Corporate compliance with increasingly restrictive laws

  • Corporate restructuring and global assignments

  • Terminating employment abroad
