The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
Generally, if you are the worker working abroad, you'll only need to make sure that you have the proper visa to be working in the country you are located in. If you are a US citizen, you will have tax filing obligations. Our law firm can give you a free consultation about those issues.
If however you are the employer, you'll need to consider the corporate, tax, immigration, and employment law issues:
- Corporate: you may need to establish a local hiring entity
- Tax: you may create a corporate tax liability through a permanent establishment (see my article linked below)
- Immigration: you may need to make sure that your employee has a proper work visa
- Employment: you may be taking on labor law liability in the local country
The specific issues for an employer or employee alike will depend on the employee's location. Happily, our firm focuses solely on these kinds of issues and can offer you a complimentary consultation at 703-879-5632 or firstname.lastname@example.org. (Also check out the link below.)
