In this article, we share the programme of the international seminar for HR Directors and CFOs entitled ‘THE NEW ERA OF INTERNATIONAL ASSIGMENT AND RELOCATION OF PERSONNEL’, a meeting to analyse the management strategies and economic opportunities of the employee mobility.
The seminar will be held Friday, October 6th, 2023 at Living Place Hotel in Bologna and it is organized by Bacciardi Partners in collaboration CELIA Alliance, the international network which brings together professional firms specialized in cross-border assignments of personnel and of which Bacciardi Partners has been a member for years. Partecipation is free of charge. The speakers are members of the network with long and established experience in labor, tax, social security and payroll management assistance in global mobility. Places are limited and can be booked through the form at the end of the article.
The international seminar is dedicated to HR Directors and CFOs and aims to illustrate, from a comparative perspective, the aspects, critical issues and formalities of a contractual, tax and social security nature related to the relocation of employees by means of international remote working and/or secondment in the EU and non-EU context.
Global mobility, in fact, whether in digital or in traditional form through secondment, requires strategic planning and timely contractual, tax and social security regulations, considering that any omissions or errors may result in administrative and – in the most serious cases – penal sanctions.
It is therefore necessary for companies involved in international operations to prioritize the planning, regulation and management of multi-jurisdictional work performed by their remote or seconded employees.
The seminar will discuss the EU rules that have harmonized national regulations, as well as the peculiarities of the domestic disciplines of Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands and Germany, as well as the United Kingdom, Mexico and China, non-EU countries with high rates of outsourced workers. The detailed program of talks will be available soon.
The seminar will be in English and will have an easy-to-understand practical focus.
