Hiring Abroad

Hiring overseas is complex. When hiring an individual to work for Princeton outside of the U.S., tax implications, labor laws, immigration, and other legal compliance implications must be considered in both the US and the foreign location where the work is performed. Hiring abroad often involves additional planning, cost and time to arrange. Please consult the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs and Operations (VPIAO) early in the process, so we can be helpful in ensuring you achieve your objectives as efficiently as possible.  This section provides guidance on the process, resources, and relevant contacts of engaging individuals to work overseas.
