Multinational companies today operate with employee talent deployed across every major region of the world, in multiple countries, across networks of offices and client sites. As business is conducted on this increasingly global scale, employers face a critical need to move workers across borders to deliver goods and services. This increase in the pace and volume of travel carries with it progressively greater risk as governments step up enforcement in a “duty to investigate” era.
This seminar examines common pitfalls companies encounter in managing a mobile workforce and meeting the business mandate to move employees “anywhere, anytime”.
The seminar will focus on:
- Multiple modes of mobility, from short-term business travel to multi-country assignments
- Who is a business visitor and why does it matter
- Short-term assignments and project work
- What does compliance mean in an era of immigration reform
