International assignments in an uncertain world (webinar)
Growing numbers of continental Europeans, formerly engaged on “local” terms, are likely to be recruited from abroad on expatriate terms.It is likely that more European nationals will require immigration clearance to work in the UK, increasing the workload of UK global mobility practitioners.
Employers are also being called upon to respond to growing security and health risks associated with international assignments.
Watch this 60-minute webinar with industry experts Juliet Carp and David Remedios, who will discuss:
- recent events and trends and their impact on global mobility;
- legal considerations; and
- practical steps employers can take to manage assignment risk in a climate of uncertainty.
