Mobility policy, the basis...
A clear mobility policy forms the basis for any employment contract between you and your cross border assignees.
International assignments differ in length and business goals. Roughly we distinguish between:
- permanent/‘one-way’ transfers;
- short term assignments;
- long-term assignments (often including family members).
A detailed mobility policy differentiates between various types of assignment. It helps avoid lapses. Also, it allows you to act quickly and consistently.
Employers and employees are always confronted with questions about compensation for cost of living, quality of living, double (housing) expenses, complementary (often more costly) insurance and extra administrative and tax-burdens.
Employment and (insurable) benefits
The (legal) ties between employer and employee remain in force during an international posting. The assignment contract includes, besides agreements on compensation and benefits, provisional measures for tax-equalization and continuation of social security benefits, or alternative benefits that provide protection for the employee regarding income, (medical) care and wellness.
