I am not based in any one country, I move around during the year. Can Family employ me? For legal and tax purposes, all staff need to be employed in one particular country, where they have the right to work on a permanent basis. This must be the country where the employee spends most of their working time (usually a minimum of six months a year). Once employed, with the agreement of HR, staff may spend time working from other countries on a short-term basis as long as they have the appropriate set up wherever they are working from.
