The intent of the one-way Cross-border Relocation (also known as a Permanent or Indefinite Relocation) is for the employee to remain in the destination country. The transferee is hired/transferred to the destination country under a local employment status and severs ties with their home country. Pay and benefits are according to the local compensation and benefits plan. What makes this stand out from a standard local hire or within country hire, is that the individual is coming from outside the country. There are special considerations that need to be addressed and InterLink works with companies to determine policies and processes for the smooth transition of talent, no matter the origin country. Depending on the exact benefits authorized for a cross-border relocation, it may be considered a Local Plus relocation package, for example, if a COLA is authorized.
