Mastering Company Relocation: A Guide to Seamless Transitions

Relocating employees between affiliated companies can be intricate, especially when spanning borders. Understand the core methods of relocation, from termination to temporary assignments, and make informed choices based on duration, employment rights, and unvested financial benefits

Abstract Background

In today's fast-paced world, many employers and employees face the challenge of relocating between affiliated companies, both within Israel and abroad.

Before diving into the process, it's essential to understand the three primary relocation methods:

  1. Terminating the employment relationship pre-relocation.

  2. Temporarily suspending the employment and placing the employee on unpaid leave.

  3. Retaining the employment relationship and temporarily assigning the employee to the foreign company.

How do you determine the best approach for your situation? Key factors to consider include:

  1. Duration of the relocation (fixed or indefinite).

  2. Desire to maintain employment rights continuity.

  3. Unvested employee financial benefits (e.g., options, restricted stock units).
