11.2 Who Is the Employer and Why Does It Matter?

In the past, most employees would live within a short distance of their work locations. However, due to technology, globalization, quick expansion requirements, and changes driven by the recent pandemic, many companies are now allowing, or considering allowing, employees to work remotely from almost anywhere. The answer to the question 'who is the employer?' has become more complex. The employer―or the entity benefiting from the employee's services―may not be the entity with which the employee has a contractual arrangement. The tax implications of this can be significant. Attend this session as the panelists review the concept of the "employer" from the income tax, social tax, legal perspective, and more! Join us for this invaluable discussion and learn best practices as well as common pitfalls if the current environment has you wondering who really is the employer and why does it matter!
