Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands – GrahamThompson Partner Stephen Wilson, QC, who also leads the firm’s Litigation practice in the Turks and Caicos was a featured expert in IR Global’s recent Virtual Series edition by the Employment Working Group, on Remote Working: The Challenge for Businesses when a home-based workforce operates from a different jurisdiction.
The discussion looks at some of the critical uncertainties and changing complexities created by the extended virtual workplace, compelled by COVID-19. The roundtable is divided into three sessions:
- What are the consequences for a business when an employee works from home on a semi-permanent basis, transferring their residence to another country?
- Are there specific rules applicable to remote working in your country? How do they apply to domestic and foreign companies?
- Will companies have to provide new policies for remote working? Will this include providing employees with the necessary equipment and reimbursing costs related to remote work?
Other panel contributors include IR Global members from Belgium, England, France, India, The Netherlands, The United States and Venezuela.
