Session #6

Millennium Ballroom and online

DESCRIPTION

Remote work became more mainstream during the pandemic lockdowns. Many companies are going a step further and adopting a ‘remote first’ and work-from anywhere (WFA) model. This model offers employees ultimate flexibility while companies get access to a global pool of talent. But what does the transition from work-from-home to WFA entail? How do employers manage a workforce spread throughout different time zones, tax systems and regulatory frameworks? How do immigration systems adapt to a world where your ‘place of work’ need not match your ‘place of residence’? The WFA model offers benefits but it also has challenges such as applicable employment law, immigration, social security, tax and data security.

Join this session held by the AIJA Labour Law and Immigration Law Commissions. While addressing these challenges, we will explore best practices and the ideal legal environment to make WFA future proof and a success. What can we learn from these early adopter companies that have adopted a ‘remote first’ or WFA model? And is this an innovative approach to building a workforce the future?

Will be announced soon.
