A worker is subject to the employer’s procedures and orders. In addition to a contract of employment that lays down the parties’ mutual rights and duties, the worker also has to comply with his job description and the employer’s internal rules, terms of business, and code of ethics in certain cases. If the rules of conduct described in these documents are seriously breached during working hours, this may lead to dismissal. In this article we will find out if it’s possible to terminate employment because the worker’s breach involves activities outside working hours.
Remote work has become a standard form of employment, as evidenced by increasing numbers of people choosing jobs with the option of working from home. This drives workforce globalisation, with technology allowing people to work anywhere in the world without changing their home. Remote work also allows people to change employers rather quickly. A digital nomad is one who takes maximum advantage of remote work. Despite their popularity, however, these new arrangements pose tax risks for workers and their employers alike. Many tax experts and researchers are therefore convinced that extensive and comprehensive reforms need to be devised in this area as soon as possible to prevent the current tax rules from lagging behind the trends in the international labour market.
The current economic challenges, such as high inflation, scarce resources and pressures to increase profitability, continue pushing businesses towards a global dilemma: either motivate your workers to stay on with a pay rise and then say goodbye to your profit, or cancel your plans for higher pay and perks and then lose skilled workers. This dilemma might have you looking for some more efficient types of employer’s financial support with a low or no tax burden, such as non-taxable fringe benefits. This article offers an overview of exempt fringes and other useful tools employers can use to support their workers in the Baltic States.
The rapid evolution on a global scale leads to changes in all areas of life. What was once seen as something new and innovative has now become a standard, or it’s out of date already and in for a change. The evolving business environment entails changes to the workplace and workers’ needs, which means new challenges for employers. Diversity of benefits available to employees is becoming a key factor in assessing the workplace. According to statistics, activities promoting diversity of benefits have a positive effect on any company’s economic activity and worker productivity. Especially during the post-pandemic period, we could see employees expecting from their employers a package of benefits that’s flexible and tailored to their needs. We have written before about the advantages of flexible reward schemes. In this article we are looking at a new technology solution that will help companies improve their benefits packages by tailoring those to the desires of their employees.
