COVID-19 Travel Disruptions Impact on Business Travelers, Executives and their Employers



Date & Time

Start Date: 06/17/2020
Start Time: 10:00 am
End Time: 11:00 am EST


COVID-19 has left visitors, business travelers, and executives stranded in their country of destination – be it in Europe or the United States – and potentially subjecting those individuals and their employers to that nation’s income tax. Likewise, employers confronted with stranded foreign employees on temporary missions must handle any consequences of over-staying a visa or a temporary work contract in compliance with immigration and employment laws. Some countries have relaxed some of these rules while others have yet to provide the necessary guidance.

Join Scott for a discussion of some of those situations and the various relief measures introduced and how they work. Scott will be taking a closer look at the implications for employers and individuals in the United States and Europe.


Taxation of Employers and Individuals

  • What are the taxation rules in the United States?
  • What are the current relief measures in the United States?
  • What about Europe?


  • What can I do if I am unable to depart the United States before my authorized period of admission expires?  
  • What are acceptable ‘business visitor’ activities?
  • Due to the impact of COVID-19 on business operations, employers are dealing with layoffs, furloughs, or termination of employees. How does this impact employees on nonimmigrant work visas? 
  • I planned on going to the U.S. Consulate abroad to apply for a new visa stamp. Can I still go?
