Hiring Abroad

Employing non-U.S. citizens overseas can present a range of concerns and issues from tax and compensations issues to safety concerns. Whether the project requires an employee to perform research assistance, educational instruction, or simply casual labor, in most countries you will have to comply with specific tax and labor laws. Compliance with local taxation and reporting procedures, in addition to providing payroll services, is complicated and often requires significant local infrastructure.

Lack of planning and consultation can result in tax penalties and fines as well as other avoidable costs. Consult with your campus counsel that appropriate protections are in place prior to starting any project that may require hiring abroad.
