How This Impacts Mobility
The EU’s decision to ease travel restrictions is a significant development as some countries around the world continue to achieve lower COVID-19 rates and move toward pre-pandemic levels of workforce mobility. The Group of 7 countries adopting a 15% global tax rate and the potential to prevent the U.S. from having the highest tax rate in the OECD would be a positive development.
Secretary Blinken’s expanded National Interest Exemptions (NIE) will allow employers to tap into talent from those additional countries who can significantly contribute to the U.S. economy as it continues to rebuild. And while Worldwide ERC® is supportive of a first come, first served green card system we also are working to prevent any future backlogs.
