What to Do About "Global COVID Nomads" ...


... and Other Wandering Workers Who Telecommute From Abroad for Personal Reasons

Technology aids remote work in ways that weren’t possible just years ago. Many different types of jobs that used to be handled at an employer’s workplace are now able to be done remotely. Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020 the work-from-home trend that was already growing just exploded. What felt like overnight, millions of on-site workers around the globe switched to telecommuting. This quick worldwide transformation to working-from-home inevitably set off logistical problems and legal challenges. Among the more complex issues are the “global covid nomads” - employees that COVID-19 transformed into telecommuters who then slipped away to work from new homes in foreign countries. This white paper reviews the legal issues around global covid nomads.
