COVID-19 Travel Disruption Impact on foreign business travelers, executives and their employers
COVID-19 has left visitors, business travelers and executives stranded in their country of destination – be it in Europe or the United States – and potentially subjecting those individuals and their employers to that nation’s income tax. Likewise, employers confronted with stranded foreign employees on temporary missions must handle any consequences of over-staying a visa or a temporary work contract in compliance with immigration and employment laws. Some countries have relaxed some of these rules while others have yet to provide the necessary guidance.
Join us for a discussion of some of those situations and the various relief measures introduced and how they work. We will be having a closer look at the implications for employers and individuals in the United States and Europe.
Topics to be discussed:
Taxation of Employers and Individuals
● What are the taxation rules in the United States?
● What are the current relief measures in the United State?
● What about Europe?
● What can I do if I am unable to depart the U.S. before my authorized period of admission expires?
● What are acceptable ‘business visitor’ activities?
● Due to the impact of COVID-19 on business operations, employers are dealing with layoffs, furloughs, or termination of employees. How does this impact employees on non-immigrant work visas?
● I planned on going to the U.S. Consulate abroad to apply for a new visa stamp. Can I still go?
