It is important to note that an MP can only be invited to perform tasks for the host that fall within the tasks defined in his or her employment contract. If the tax clause is broad enough in the employment contract, there should be no problem; Otherwise, it will most likely be necessary to amend the employment contract before the detachment begins. Our design masterclass series continues by looking at alternative work arrangements: postings, sabbaticals, temporary roles and zero-hours arrangements. This article explains the main factors in the development of a secondment agreement. If the Member uses the host`s equipment and information during the detachment, it is a good idea to include a clause in the detachment agreement that requires the return of the host`s property and the permanent removal of host data from all personal devices used during the detachment. The detachment agreement must therefore include a description of the MP`s duties during the secondment. One option is to be able to attach a full description of the MP`s role to the detachment agreement. On the other hand, the parties may prefer that the description of the services be very general to give the host more flexibility. The secondment agreement should therefore stipulate that the employer retains responsibility for administrative tasks such as: payment of the Member`s salary, benefits and pension contributions; Reimbursement of the Second for duly incurred expenses; compensation for income tax and social security contributions; Authorizing and registering annual leave; and the provision of sickness benefits. While a secondment can be managed relatively informally within the same employer or group, the best way to obtain a staff member`s secondment from a third-party organization. B for example a client or client, can be obtained by a formal agreement of detachment between the two parties. The secondment agreement between the seconded worker`s employer (the MP) and the “host” – to which the Member is seconded – should contain some key words that will be discussed below.
The expectation of a secondment is that the MP`s employment with his employer will not be affected by the detachment, that their employment will continue and that they will return to their original role at the end of the posting. The agreement should also indicate how long it takes the Member to commit to the secondment obligations.
