Working abroad as an expat

Are you going to work abroad temporarily or long-term? As an expat, you will have a different employment relationship with your employer. Terms and conditions of employment may change. Sometimes foreign legislation is applicable, and a different entity becomes the contractual party. Often, a new or additional (employment) agreement is required. Moreover, work permits, tax payments and the protection of national insurance play a major role in case of secondments. Where dismissal looms, an expat in a foreign environment is particularly vulnerable.
