Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, employers have seen a huge increase in requests from employees to work from home in another country for the short, medium and long term.

Although this may seem a sensible option in the circumstances, the creation of a temporary overseas workforce presents potential pitfalls for employers. Employers should therefore be mindful of the various legal implications of these “work from home, abroad” arrangements before agreeing to such requests.

In this session, our Hong Kong team will cover:

  • Key considerations for employers when evaluating requests to work from home abroad, including in relation to tax, local employment rights, immigration issues and data protection; and
  • Key practical steps for employers to help minimise the risks of any legal problems.
