Taking Care of Employees and Remote Workers Overseas
Understand the legal risk exposure an employer has to its overseas-working staff.
An employer owes a duty of care to its employees. The scope of this duty gets complex and possibly expensive when the employer is in the United States, and the employee works overseas, whether the employee is a foreign local hired abroad, an expatriate, an international business traveler, or a telecommuter working abroad for personal reasons.
