International Employment Assignments:
Understanding the Compliance Risks
September 21, 2010
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EST

Whether a company is sending employees to the U.S. to work in its U.S. branches, subsidiaries or affiliates, or sending U.S. citizen employees abroad to work in foreign entities, the risks of failing to comply with U.S. and foreign employment and immigration laws are enormous. Attorneys who counsel these companies and human resource executives who implement company policy must be aware of strict immigration and work permit requirements on the one hand, and of the great dangers inherent in failing to follow U.S. workplace regulations on the other. This teleconference will cover the nuts and bolts of immigration issues for expatriate or "seconded" employees, and at the same time provide an encyclopedic overview of U.S. and foreign employment laws and regulations. Armed with this information, costly (even ruinous) mistakes can be avoided and your clients and companies can more effectively take advantage of their global human capital.
