In this episode of our Cross-Border Catch-Up podcast series, Patty Shapiro and Lina Fernandez discuss key considerations for both U.S. and global employers that receive requests from employees to work remotely abroad. From potential conflicts in immigration requirements to digital nomad visas that may be available in non-U.S. countries, Patty and Lina, both of whom are attorneys in the firm’s Cross-Border Practice Group, review the risks to which employers are exposed in the context of remote work abroad. The speakers also address tax compliance requirements, the varying benefits and protections to which employees may be entitled abroad (such as variations in at-will employment, workers’ compensation, Social Security benefits, and medical insurance benefits), and compliance with local employment laws.
