Sending Employees Overseas: Employment, Tax, Immigration & Benefits Issues
Continuing Legal Education
This seminar provides an overview of the issues that a U.S. employer should consider when getting ready to hire a foreign employee or send a U.S. employee overseas.
Many U.S. employers assume that if an employment relationship is created in the U.S., they can rely on their understanding of U.S. laws and customary practices to deal with the tax, employee benefits, dismissal, vacation and other issues that arise out of the employer/employee relationship. Others assume that they can simply avoid these issues by deciding to call their foreign employees independent contractors. Unfortunately, these assumptions are not true, and can lead to difficult--and preventable--problems later in the employment relationship.
This program helps professionals managing these situations--from employment lawyers, tax lawyers, benefit lawyers and immigration lawyers to human resources/personnel department managers--to anticipate, prevent and plan for these issues to help avoid future problems, misunderstandings and expenses.
