The Forum for Expatriate Management was created in 2008 to provide both an online and real-world community for global mobility professionals and at our Chapter Meetings we bring together people and companies to form an educational, supportive and collaborative network, so we are pleased to announce the inaugural meeting of the FEM Prague Chapter. The initiative is organised in cooperation with Mobility Forum, an initiative originally created as a joint project between SAP and Deloitte which also aims to build a community of mobility professionals from other companies in the Czech Republic. 

Join us as we discuss the impact of cross-border activities on a range of issues including immigration, tax and social security compliance, duty of care. So what exactly should be considered when employees with regional roles and responsibilities work from home in a different country to that of their legal employer? We will also highlight the most important changes in new Czech immigration legislation and how the Posted Worker Directive of European Union impacts on the obligations of employers.

Following the opening presentation will be a panel discussion on HR and Mobility as a strategic business partner.
