International assignments/expatriation

Susan DennehyEditor's message: International assignments often fail because the employer has not put in place the right support mechanisms for the assigned employee and his or her family.

An international assignment should be supported by relevant documents to ensure that the employee to be assigned and his or her managers at the home and host organisations know what the assignee's terms and conditions are during the assignment and where the responsibilities for the different aspects of the assignment lie.
