Duty of care of employers for protecting international assignees, their dependents and international business travelers

International work and travel are an integral part of the daily operations of a multinational company (“MNC”). This paper by Lisbeth Claus, from International SOS (2009), looks to fill the document gap on employment literature by bringing together various lesser known and dispersed themes on the topic. The author provides a comparative analysis of case studies of ten different country’s legal position on duty of care. The paper also makes recommendations on areas of particular importance or previous neglect, stating there is a Duty of Care on employers, from a legal, fiduciary, and corporate social responsibility perspective.
