Structuring International Secondments

20 January 2015


Bird & Bird, 4/F, Three Pacific Place, 1 Queen's Road East, Hong Kong

Bird & Bird is hosting a seminar on Tuesday, 20 January 2015 where partners Padraig Walsh and Ying Wang will talk about how to properly structure international secondments. CPD point for this seminar is being applied.

Secondments are good. Employees increase their skills and value, and gain new experience. The organisation uses its human resources to best advantage. That's the HR view.

Here is the legal view. Secondments can go badly wrong. Poor paperwork, and different legal rules, can destroy the intended benefits and leave the employer and the host with an unintended legal headache.

We will explain the key features of good secondment documents, and give guidance on how to avoid common mistakes and risks. We will briefly touch on the tax benefits that can result from proper structuring of secondments.
