Borders are no longer a limit for workforces today. Companies are expanding their business around the world and hiring employees via global talent hubs in varying locations. Employees are also requesting more flexible work arrangements, including the ability to work from various locations, to move from country to country, essentially contributing to the company wherever they are located.
However, with new opportunities come new challenges. Global mobility brings various compliance challenges to the table. What are the visa requirements to work in certain countries? When do companies need to pay taxes for an employee working in another country? What are the challenges of permanently relocated workers? What employment laws apply to a worker? Can companies really adopt a work anywhere approach? These are questions that global companies must be able to answer to ensure compliance within every jurisdiction in which they have employees.
In this session, Nicole Forbes, Deputy General Counsel at G-P, will share her expertise on the following topics:
- Global mobility compliance: What are the compliance challenges for companies with a mobile workforce and how can they best tackle them?
- International employee relocation: How can companies efficiently relocate employees to different countries?
