More and more multinational companies are deploying key employees around the globe to serve the increasing international business needs of the multinational, its global markets, and its customers. The ability to relocate employees quickly from one location to another, and the ability of those employees to quickly focus on the business objectives of the company once they are relocated, can often determine the success of a new regional operation or an entire global strategy. It is crucial for employers to avoid unexpected barriers or difficulties in the form of employment-related issues. This enormously valuable handbook is the ideal solution to such problems, both in the anticipation and in the event. With 32 chapters each written by local experts, it provides a practical, country-by-country guide to employee relocation issues among the world?s most active or fast-developing economies. Each chapter offers a handy reference to relevant issues under each particular country?s laws regarding employment status, compensation and benefits, related tax issues, and more. With its reliable guidance, both employers and employees can proceed confidently with their cross-border plans and commitments. The writers of each chapter answer important questions on a wide range of employment issues. Among the many relevant matters covered?in the same order in each chapter, for easy cross-reference?are the following: types of employment visas and related qualification requirements; expenses and time frame for obtaining visas; income taxation of foreign nationals; employer?s tax withholding requirements; filing and reporting requirements; eligibility for employee or retirement benefits; continuation of home country benefits; wealth, capital, estate or death taxes; taxable presence of foreign corporate employers; vicarious liability for acts of employees; privacy laws relating to employees; employment termination provisions under local law; enforceability of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements; and protection of confidential or trade secret information. The Handbook has been meticulously produced under the auspices of member firms of the World Law Group, a leading network of 48 independent law firms located in most of the world?s major commercial centers. A peerless source of information and guidance to employers in expatriate relocation planning, it will greatly help to foresee potential pitfalls and benefit from local advantages, so both employers and expatriate employees will be free to concentrate on the business goals at hand.

A nation's economic success depends on the capacity of its companies and trading organizations to develop business relationships, trade and do business in the international arena.

The mantra for managers today is think global, act local. In this handbook the authors concentrate on the big developments that currently are happening at an international level. They consider how managers operating in the global business landscape must change what they do to create advantages and remain competitive. The Global Business Handbook is based on the structure of the very successful IÉSEG International School of Management's programme on international management. It includes a global focus, backed by the latest research on different aspects of international business carried out in different parts of the world.

The Oxford Handbook of Gender in Organizations

Author: Savita Kumra
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 9780191632754
Release Date: 2014-03-13
Genre: Business & Economics

The issue of gender in organizations has attracted much attention and debate over a number of years. The focus of examination is inequality of opportunity between the genders and the impact this has on organizations, individual men and women, and society as a whole. It is undoubtedly the case that progress has been made with women participating in organizational life in greater numbers and at more senior levels than has been historically the case, challenging notions that senior and/or influential organizational and political roles remain a masculine domain. The Oxford Handbook of Gender in Organizations is a comprehensive analysis of thinking and research on gender in organizations with original contributions from key international scholars in the field. The Handbook comprises four sections. The first looks at the theoretical roots and potential for theoretical development in respect of the topic of gender in organizations. The second section focuses on leadership and management and the gender issues arising in this field; contributors review the extensive literature and reflect on progress made as well as commenting on hurdles yet to be overcome. The third section considers the gendered nature of careers. Here the focus is on querying traditional approaches to career, surfacing embedded assumptions within traditional approaches, and assessing potential for alternative patterns to evolve, taking into account the nature of women's lives and the changing nature of organizations. In its final section the Handbook examines masculinity in organizations to assess the diversity of masculinities evident within organizations and the challenges posed to those outside the norm. In bringing together a broad range of research and thinking on gender in organizations across a number of disciplines, sub-disciplines, and conceptual perspectives, the Handbook provides a comprehensive view of both contemporary thinking and future research directions.
