Employee Bulletin; The Wider World of Global Mobility

During the Coronavirus pandemic, it is increasingly important to understand how we can support our staff on many different levels. At IPM we want to ensure that we can help support as many people as possible with some helpful tips and advice as well as addressing other legislations and requirements that go beyond the current crisis.

We welcome support and tips from all and look to create a Hub to all work together, not only in these times of trouble but in the future.

We have outlined the main issues that are present during times of crisis and those that are also pertinent specifically to Globally Mobile employees. Given the ever-increasing global mobility of employees, employers could be regularly required to understand and comply with numerous legislative requirements in many jurisdictions. We will keep abreast with changes and add to the list as necessary.

This Guidance therefore sets out the main issues:
