Our Global Mobility Practice Group covers all legal aspects affecting international employment situations, such as simultaneous employment in various countries, cross-border secondments or transfers, the hiring of foreign employees and salary splits. Besides focusing on immigration requirements, the team also concentrates on the impact of international mobility on the applicable labour laws, social security, taxes and occupational pension plans.
In 2011, the global mobility group published an International Handbook on Immigration, which offers practical advice on the business immigration requirements of 36 jurisdictions across Europe and the Americas.
Our European members also recently issued Secondments to and within Europe, giving practical guidelines for companies to consider when preparing an assignment to or within Europe. It covers topics such as immigration, applicable labour laws, social security and taxes, the prohibited lease of personnel and occupational pensions.
