It would be simple if there was an ideal way to structure an intra-company expatriate posting. But there isn't. In practice, even within a given company, expat arrangements take on a wide variety of structures, depending on variables specific to the particular scenario. Some expats are secondees; some are localized; some are dual employees on a split payroll; some are paid on a "shadow payroll"; and, some work under local host country contracts with "hibernating" home country contracts in addition.
Once an expat gets posted abroad under one of these structures, legal issues continue to surface. Everyone knows an expat needs a visa and a work permit. But the legal issues go well beyond immigration law:
Join Donald C. Dowling, Jr., White & Case partner and the Firm's International Employment Counsel, for a discussion on the tricky, cross-border legal issues that expats trigger. He will start by tackling the legal issues in structuring an expat assignment and will move on to expat payroll compliance and expat benefits.
You will learn which employment laws apply during an expat assignment and the laws that govern expat terminations and post-termination restrictive covenants. This webinar will offer vital (and insufficiently-understood) information for those who work with inbound or outbound international assignments and mobility and will offer up practical tips for international human resources and mobility professionals, as well as employment and immigration lawyers.
