Target Audience: Senior Management interested in this issue

The pandemic has created an opportunity for institutions to explore whether flexible work arrangements can and should be adopted to enable employee recruitment and retention. This assessment needs to be considered through a variety of lenses, including taxation. What is the impact of work-from-home arrangements on determining an individual’s employment status (employee versus consultant)? What are the implications, for both the employer and the employee, associated with employees working abroad? Representatives from Price Waterhouse Coopers will discuss these and other considerations.

There will be opportunities for interaction during the webinar via a Q&A session that will follow the presentation. This 90-minute webinar is intended for all senior administrators interested in this issue.

This CAUBO PD activity may count towards credits for accreditation programs and designations in your field. Visit the CAUBO website for more details.

Take note that registration will close at 8:00 PM ET on November 22, 2022.

How do I acquire my credits?

Each individual member will be responsible for assessing whether or not the PD activities you take part in are relevant to your work and/or education requirements. If you believe they are, you must file directly with the specific accreditation body to earn your credits.
