Global Mobility, Secondments, and International Employee Assignments
In a business world that is becoming increasingly interconnected, the need to send employees on cross-border work assignments is becoming ever more fundamental. Companies that want to stay competitive on the global market must manage employee relocation in a flexible and cost-efficient manner. It can be difficult to get a sufficient overview of the various permits required for entry, residence, and employment in Austria, because there are so many factors to take into account for each specific case.
