Relocating to another country may seems like a fantastic quest for some people, but to others, it may turn out to be a little daunting experience especially in areas of documentations and regulations.  Little wonder immigration issue and expatriate workers are major subjects of global legislation. Hence, both HR and Legal practitioners must understand the trends of expatriate management in Nigeria and Africa at large.

For instance, in recent legislation such as the 2015 immigration Act made Non-renewal of Expatriate Quota (EQ) by a corporate body to attract a fine of about three million Naira (Over USD15,000). It is also an offence for any expatriate employee to change his employment in Nigeria without notice to and approval of the Director of Immigration; aside, it has now become a wrongdoing for an employer to terminate the employment of certain expatriate employee without first giving notice of such termination to the Nigerian Immigration Service. These and many more are major risk organizations must manage properly in their strategies to employing expatriate in Nigeria.

The training will be held in a supportive learning atmosphere to focus on strategic and regulatory issues on expatriate employment as well as management.  You will examine the most up-to-date laws which will help participants to improve knowledge and its application in managing their expatriate employees.
