November 2016

Watch Webinar Recording (CLE/CPD Credit Available)

In this Global Employer Solutions webinar, our panelists answer key structural questions a multinational employer should confront when setting up a global mobility assignment, cross-border secondment, or expatriate posting including:   

  • Who is and is not an “expatriate,” and which global mobility assignments do not actually involve “expatriates”? 
  • Which cross-border personnel posting structure is most appropriate for a given assignment? 
  • In structuring a global mobility assignment, what is the role of compliance with host-country employment and “payroll” laws—and what about the “permanent establishment” doctrine? 
  • How should an employer craft written global mobility agreements like expatriate assignment letters and inter-affiliate expatriation arrangements?
