The future of global mobility and immigration
RECORDED WEBCAST |
For global employers, the pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on their global mobility programs. Country-by-country travel restrictions changing frequently have made it challenging, and in some cases impossible, for employees to move between a company’s global locations. Travel restrictions and quarantine requirements could have employees working unexpectedly in unplanned jurisdictions. Extremely limited visa services at U.S. consulates worldwide, and U.S. immigration work visa suspensions, have significantly complicated the strategic planning required for international assignments. Employers have been forced to modify, postpone or cancel international assignment plans, and global tax obligations may now be affected by new and constantly-evolving local tax laws and regulations developed by countries in response to the pandemic. This new environment will require many organizations to develop, or amend, policies, processes and strategies to address the new way in which we work.
