GLOBAL MOBILITY HANDBOOK 2013 [26 February 2013]
[full-text, 595 pages]
The global movement of employees is essential to multinational
organizations doing business in different countries. Getting the right
people to the right places at the right time with proper support in a
lawful manner is critical to the success of global businesses. Human
resource professionals and corporate counsel are confronted with a
maze of legal issues that must be considered before moving
employees across borders.
When can they go? How long can they stay? What can they do while
there? How can they be paid? What happens to their employment
benefits during the trip? Who will be the employer while abroad?
Which country’s laws will apply? What are the tax consequences to
the employer and the employee? What about accompanying family
These issues confront employers dealing with both short-term
business travelers, as well employees on long-term assignments. This
is a global mobility handbook to help guide you.
