Let’s Talk About Your Risk
It can be tempting to try to skirt the labor laws in other countries by hiring contractors or otherwise deploying a workforce that might just slide under the radar of the local government. The costs are cheap and besides, you’re only testing the market anyway. You’ll get compliant when you have to. Right?
Importance of Compliant Global HR Practices
A few of the consequences for choosing a less-than-compliant labor solution:
- Immediate shutdown of operations
- Hefty fines and huge unexpected tax consequences
- Damaged reputation
- The ability to potentially devalue your company or have difficulty selling it later
- Labor lawsuits your foreign employees are almost guaranteed to win (at high, unexpected costs to you)
- Potential criminal penalties
That’s right. In certain countries, directors of companies who attempt to navigate international business waters out of compliance can be held personally and criminally liable. This is why it is especially important to have a company you can trust to handle all of your compliance issues in the country.
