Can I “Work From Home” in Another Country?

This article by a Brackenbury client provides guidance to employers from the UK on the potential  legal issues associated with the increase in employees asking if they can work from ‘home’ for an extended period in an overseas country, for example, because it is their home nation or their family is based there.

The article examines the various issues, including tax, social security, immigration and employment implications, before agreeing to an employee’s request to work from home when ‘home’ is not in the UK.

The piece looks at each of these while outlining practical steps employers can take to minimise the risks.
