Taking Care of Employees and Remote Workers Overseas

February 8

Understand the legal risk exposure an employer has to its overseas-working staff.

An employer owes a duty of care to its employees. The scope of this duty gets complex and possibly expensive when the employer is in the United States, and the employee works overseas, whether the employee is a foreign local hired abroad, an expatriate, an international business traveler, or a telecommuter working abroad for personal reasons. This course explains the legal risk exposure an employer has to its overseas-working staff who suffer personal injuries abroad and offers practical strategies and best practices for minimizing and limiting legal exposure.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to define the scope of an employer’s legal duty of care to its employees.
  • You will be able to explain how an employer’s duty of care plays out as to differently-situated employees.
  • You will be able to discuss strategies and best practices for minimizing duty of care exposure globally.
  • You will be able to review global policies on health and safety in the workplace.
