Global Mobility

The term Global Mobility refers to personnel assignments beyond national borders. In times of increasing globalization, the travel activities of employees are also steadily increasing, from short business trips to assignments lasting several years. Digitalization offers new opportunities in the areas of home office and remote work, which have implications for both employers and employees in terms of tax, social security and permit legislation.
