Global Mobility – Working Holiday
Date: 2nd March 2021
Location: Online - 2-3pm
Tuesday 2 March 2021
Timings: 2.00 - 3.00pm
The last year has seen an enormous up-tick in the number of cases where employees are working outside of their home employing location. The COVID-19 pandemic has seen travel restrictions, governmental guidance to work from home and the closing of campuses and moving to online teaching.
With the numerous travel restrictions that have been in place individuals with family overseas are now wanting to spend additional time going "home" to allow them to spend time with family and friends whilst also managing ongoing quarantine requirements.
All these factors have meant that, more than ever, university staff are able to - and want to - take advantage of that flexibility and work outside of the UK for short periods of time.
But how does the university balance the employee demand with its employer and corporate obligations in relation to employment taxes, immigration and corporate taxes? How do they ensure allowing employees to do this does not come with excessive cost or additional administration for the university. How do they ensure that everyone is treated equally and fairly in respect to what is allowed and not allowed.
Join us on 2 March 2021 for an informative session hosted by PwC's Marie Green (PwC HE Global Mobility lead) and Louise Nicholls (PwC HE Global Mobility team). Exploring the challenges experienced by HE in dealing with short term personal requests to work overseas and the options available to manage the associated process, risks and costs arising to ensure universities are ready for the increasing number of personal requests been made in 2021 to work overseas.
