Here are some clues from Ed Wright from Martensen Wright PC from our “Sending Expats to the US” event in October 2015.


Types of Contracts

  • Local Employment Contracts
    • Temporary assignment to host country
    • Employee officially works for the U.S. Entity
    • Contract written according to U.S. federal and state labor laws
  • Secondment Contract
    • Temporary assignment to host country
    • Employee still works for the home company

Other things to consider when creating the employment contract are that

  • ™Negotiation is more extensive than your average employment agreement
  • ™Must consider U.S. Federal labor laws and state labor laws
  • ™Employment Agreement must detail position, duties, duration, obligations of the parties and lines of report
