With the advent of the Coronavirus pandemic, the world of work was forced to implement new working structures overnight. Although some companies had been considering alternative models of work for some time, with the slow return to normality it is clear that these changes are now here to stay.
We have developed a Heatmap providing an overview of the key risks and issues associated with using these employment structures in 19 countries across the world. We have considered the risks from a variety of angles including tax law, employment status, labour leasing, data privacy issues and the protection of intellectual property rights.
The Heatmap, developed by Bird & Bird’s International HR Services department, forms an important step in selecting the most suitable employment model for a particular situation in a specific jurisdiction, and is an essential tool for employers who are considering adopting a new structure or evaluating an existing one.
