Global Mobility Services

As an international business, one of your competitive advantages is your ability to quickly and cost-effectively relocate employees across jurisdictions. But global mobility presents its own challenges. The fact is, HR professionals need, for example, to deal with tax and social security, work permit and visa requirements, employment law, pension plans and compensation across multiple jurisdictions. At Ius Laboris, we offer full global mobility support from lawyers all around the world expert who are committed to staying abreast of all issues in this field.

Our Services

We provide legal advice on a whole range of global mobility issues. Here is some of what we do:

  • Advise on secondments, transfers and the recruitment of foreign nationals
  • Provide immigration assistance, including obtaining visas, work and residence permits
  • Offer tax, social security and pension advice relating to immigration
  • Manage cross-border migration projects

Beyond Brexit

In Europe, the UK’s departure from the EU might affect employee mobility to and from that country, but long before Brexit, Ius Laboris has been navigating mobility concerns around the world. We have continually been fostering relations with public authorities and decision-makers. After all, there is so much more to employee mobility strategy than just securing a contract and a work permit. Companies need to take a strategic approach to all immigration issues, stay abreast of all pending cross-border immigration changes and sometimes have their voice heard by policymakers.

Immigration Programmes

Our experienced law firms work with you to create and implement global mobility programmes that move employees across a wide range of sectors and jurisdictions. For example, read our Global Fashion Group Transfers Employees Case Study which addresses a transfer situation for one of the world's largest cross-border fashion retailers.  Simply put, we can address all administrative and legal issues associated with international employee transfers in the countries you operate in - or may operate in one day. This includes simultaneous employment in various countries, salary splits, cross-border secondments or transfers and the recruitment of foreign nationals.
