Has anyone ever worked remotely outside of the country for an extended period of time? I have family outside of the country that I would really like to spend some time with without sacrificing my job. Any advice?

You cannot work remotely outside of the country. There are tax implications that can be brought up by working overseas. If you get a vpn, as someone else suggested, and it’s discovered that you are working internationally, you will most likely be terminated


Author, I would check with engagement leadership. I am planning to visit my home country and planning to use some PTO and then work partially for few weeks. Check with your team, legally you should not but from materiality point of view it would be ok as long as it for few weeks.

This is a just do it situation. If you ask the answer is no. If you do it and keep domestic hours no one knows.


I've had friends that do it but it's technically illegal so be careful, get a vpn etc

I mean would there be a time limit that would make it okay?

I invited my SO to a work event where people are bringing a plus one. She said yes at first, then later followed up with an “if she can make it.” This happens almost every time I invite her to things, citing work. Last night I got really sad after that and couldn’t understand why she would never put me above work. She’s a dentist and has control over her schedule - can schedule treatment for another day or stop seeing patients at a certain time. Am I making a big deal out of a work event?
