Mobility - February 2021 - 25

Regulatory and Compliance Forum

Chair - George Powdar of Altair Global
Vice Chair - Jeff Margolis of SIRVA Worldwide Inc.
The Regulatory and Compliance Forum Roundtable
identified its top priorities for this year, including
restrictions on global trade regulations and talent
location, the placement of global talent, and the
European Posted Workers Directive and its impact
on employees on temporary assignments to the EU.
On the European Posted Workers Directive, as of
30 July 2020, employers with employees on temporary assignments in EU countries must adhere to a
framework of protections for the workers, including
minimum salaries and a set of work conditions. The
forum also discussed the growing trend of worker
protection laws in areas other than the EU, with the
rise in use of contractors and whether or not they
should have the same rights and benefits as employees. Finally, corporate responsibility-especially in
regard to a pandemic-is a hot issue, as are increased
expectations and policies for diversity (e.g., nationality, race, gender) around the globe. The Regulatory
and Compliance Forum will be working toward
solutions in these priority areas this year.
Tax Forum

Chair - Craig Anderson of AECC Mobility
Email: taxforumchair@worldwideerc.org
Vice Chair - Jennifer Stein of the Global Tax
Network
As the world of work has reacted to unprecedented
changes that caused many around the world to shift
to remote work, the temporary location tax treatment of employees working from home has been
top of mind. In the U.S., the issue varies by state
as to work presence (nexus) and payroll tax withholding. Each state needs to be looked at separately.
Finding tax solutions for remote work must take into

consideration public policies that impact the benefits,
payroll tax, and expense reimbursements of workforces. The pandemic has also complicated the global
taxation of remote workers and transferees. Many
workers have moved back to their country of citizenship and are not meeting residency requirements of
individual countries; thus, they are subject to different
tax rules. Canada, for instance, has issued additional
T4 reporting requirements due to COVID-19-
similar to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) in
the U.S.-that have provided temporary subsidies for
employers. We expect tax to remain a top priority for
governments this year, and the Tax Forum is working
with the new U.S. administration and Congress in
particular on issues of economic stimulus and tax
relief for small business and employees in addition to
solutions for remote work taxation.
