Did you know the modern-day necktie was invented in Croatia? Croatian soldiers in the 17th century would wear a scarf around their necks, and the tradition spread into France and across Europe. You won’t find this nugget of fashion history in our Country Spotlight on Croatia, but you will learn plenty about the country’s labor and payroll regulations.
Also in this issue of Global Payroll, you’ll find guidance on “Navigating the Impending EU General Data Protection Regulation.” Designed primarily to update current law to address the digital economy, the regulation will impact every aspect of the employment relationship, including the processing of payroll for all employees located in the European Union. Now is the time to prepare.
As global payroll evolves, we can no longer view a company’s headquarters as one group and everywhere else as another. Learn why and how to find new opportunities for process improvement in “Merging Your Domestic, International Payroll Systems.”
In addition, in the wake of the Queen’s Speech to both Houses of Parliament and in the midst of Brexit negotiations, take a look at what payroll professionals with employees in the U.K. need to know about the “Challenges of Complying With U.K. Minimum Wage.”
Finally, you may notice that, beginning with this edition of Global Payroll, the look and feel of our online publication has changed, albeit with the same great content. We hope you like the new design, and if you’d like to share your thoughts on the new presentation, contact us at [email protected].
