Meeting HR Needs for Overseas Sponsored Projects


Meeting human resources needs for overseas sponsored projects can be challenging.  Short-term visits by Yale employees may be affected primarily by visa issues; longer-term assignments should prompt questions about local labor laws, taxation, immigration and work authorizations, costs of relocation, healthcare, safety, and more; and local hiring will bring an additional set of considerations.  You will need to become familiar with multiple sets of obligations (U.S. and local laws, Yale policies, and sponsor requirements), consult with the Office of Sponsored Projects, Human Resources, and the Office of the General Counsel, and plan ahead.

Note that overseas procurement activities associated with sponsored projects must follow Yale’s procurement policies and procedures.  For more information about purchasing goods and services outside the U.S., click here.
