Some examples of areas in which CMS can help: 

  • Employee agreements covering all employment-law aspects of the international assignment lifecycle in the relevant jurisdiction, from initial assignment through to termination; 
  • Mobility policies;
  • International assignment services; 
  • Termination of international assignment services agreements;
  • HR data protection requirements;
  • Tax optimization of salary splits and employee benefits; 
  • Analysis of the applicable social security scheme(s) and their consequences; and
  • Application for the required permits to reside and work in the country, both for expats and their family members.

Did you know that the Austrian legislator regulated different requirements for postings based on a works contract and transnational temporary agency work?
