ELA Annual Conference Season 2021

Home working from overseas and international mobility have become increasingly tempting through the pandemic. Which of us has not thought about working more permanently from a sunny location or living closer to family and friends?  Employers anticipating skills shortages or immigration barriers might offer international commuting as a carrot or consider recruiting virtual workers abroad. 

This interactive panel discussion between global mobility specialists looks at the practicalities - and realities - of cross-border flexible working.  

The panel will discuss: 

  • Post-pandemic mobility landscapes, trends and new approaches;
  • Technical basics that employment lawyers exploring options with clients need to understand:  
    • What questions should you ask and when?  
    • Can you explain why the duration of work overseas or role might make a difference? 
    • Is tax and social security or immigration more important? 
    • Are you able to anticipate and discuss potential administrative and cost consequences?
  • Why mobility policies and contract updates are needed by most UK employers (even those who may not have considered international mobility before the pandemic) and how to engage stakeholders to develop policies that really work for their business;
  • Practical strategies to address challenges efficiently and reduce the risk of decisions coming back to bite, e.g. by using technology, securing third party support or anticipating termination.

The panel will share real-life examples and offer practical tips.  This is your opportunity to ask questions about things that are ‘not quite employment law’ but which you need to know to advise your client well.
