As the world strives to recover from the recent pandemic, many companies are re-evaluating their options for engaging workers across the globe. Some workers – comfortable with the work from home model – are asking to relocate to their home countries in APAC or LATAM but continue their engagement with their employer in a foreign location. Some companies are anxious to expand networking or recruitment options by looking beyond their local borders. Whatever the reason, engaging freelancers is a common structure for recruiting workers across APAC and LATAM. Participants in this webinar will discuss some of the unique considerations for engaging freelancers in these regions:

  • The common risks to all countries: corporate, tax, and employment
  • The ever-present misclassification risk… but how practical a risk is it?
  • Options for paying contractors in the region… it may not be as easy as it sounds
