Assigning current employees to a new country for a global assignment can often be an exciting experience. For the employee, they are able to live and work in a new country, while surrounding themselves in a different culture.

However, there are some subject areas you may need to consider before sending employees to a different country. These subject areas, while normal in one part of the world, may be seen as taboo in another part.

Join Envoy for a discussion around employment law considerations that may impact your immigration program. You'll learn about:

  • Subject areas you may need to collect information on that you may not have previously considered
  • Why these considerations matter
  • And much more
