What we cover

This white paper discusses a new, post-pandemic benefit: temporary work from abroad. While many employers are working on a policy around this topic, the potential compliance risks related to working internationally often lead to these policies being rather conservative. Many of them include company-wide limitations such as  limited durations of 30 days per year. From a compliance perspective, this type of limitation does not make sense. 

In this report you will discover how we argue for a more progressive approach to temporary work from abroad and addresses three best practises for it.

How?  

(1) Customising possibilities, 

(2) Managing the process, and 

(3) Making it a benefit. 

These best practises should help employers in managing the compliance risks related to temporary work from abroad, whilst enabling their employees to enjoy this benefit beyond boundaries.
