Dear HR Practitioners
I seek your help and advice in managing the repatriation of foreign workers (FW).
We have an FW whom we have to send back to China.
In the past, we would just put him on a flight home.
Nowadays, the situation is complicated due to COVID-19 as there is no direct flight to their hometown, transit and quarantine.
If there are additional costs to be borne in the repatriation to the nearest airport, travel to hometown and quarantine, do we as the employer have to bear them?
Appreciate your advice.
