Process to work abroad

📌
Subject: Working Abroad Procedure DRI: @Mylene LAOT Last update: Q3 2022 Expiration date: Q3 2023

Definition

🌐 As a global remote-first company, Strapi encourages Strapiers to work from wherever they are most pleased!

Following some instructions, everyone can ask to work abroad (for less than 6 months in the year, due to legal and fiscal requirements). ❓ Working abroad: working from another location (country) from the one written in your contract.

NB 1: European and non-European citizen processes have to be different, for legal reasons. NB 2: Non-European processes will be documented as soon as needed, as all cases have different legal requirements.

You must follow this process if you work from a different time zone.

How do I request a period of working abroad?

👉
Only for stays longer than 2 weeks and less than 6 months

You need to communicate it to your manager and the People Team and keep Strapi informed

Fill in a form request 1 month prior to my departure
‣
❓Why one month before the departure?

Each case can be different and it allows the people team to check the administrative tasks to perform in order to make sure your situation will be compliant.

Make sure you will get insured
‣
If you are European and will have a stay in a European country
‣
🇫🇷 For French resident

Go in Ameli and connect to your account

Request your european social security card (expected delay is of 2 weeks)

‣
Get an optional insurance

You can register in Safetywings nomad plan for additional coverage

Keep Strapi informed
I discuss it with my manager 1 month before at least (and before filling in the form) to ensure it will not have any impact on the teamwork
If I want to work at a different timezone, I identify the different meetings that could be impacted
I inform my team a few days before
I update my Google calendar, Slack and Whena.re (and Lever, if you recruit) with your time zone
I post on Slack in #chill-room

FAQ

‣
Should I make a request for only 2 days abroad?

Not a request, but you need to communicate it to your manager and the People Team.

Even if it is for a very short period of time, Strapi needs to know in which country you will be working (for insurance reasons).
