Who can use this expatriate employment contract?
This expatriate form of contract is suitable for a company in one country that employs foreign nationals to work for it.
What are the main issues?
If you send someone to work overseas, you will normally need to give them various benefits that do not apply at home. These include return airfares at least once or twice a year, accommodation costs in the country and maybe more. And you may need to pay for the employee’s family to accompany them.
You should also get legal advice on the employment laws in the overseas territory. Even if your company is based in the UK and your employee is a UK citizen, the laws in that country may say that their employment law applies to the contract.
