Coronavirus (Covid-19) updates for staff and students

Staff working abroad

High-level information for managers regarding the implications of staff working outside the UK.

(Updated 20 September 2021)

Working overseas for a UK employer – even for a short period of time - can have immigration/work-permit, employment law, tax and social security implications (for both the individual and the University) in that third-country. These implications must be fully explored,  risk assessed, costed and considered by the relevant Head of College/Professional Service Group before any overseas working  agreement is put in place.

Further information on the criteria which must be met and the approval process which must be followed can be found in the HR Working Abroad pages:
