Probably not unless it’s your home country but will anyone find out?

RSM1 are you on an L visa or H1B?

You need to speak with your employer because there are likely tax considerations

A US employee working in a foreign jurisdiction can lead to Permanent Establishment (PE) risk for employer. Your employer may end up getting a tax bill/notice from foreign country to file tax returns and pay taxes. Best is to speak to someone from tax department in your firm before you decide to do it. PE risks for companies are complicated and careful analysis is required to determine if an employee can work/not work in foreign location.

Thanks! Yes, I am planning to return to the US and not work remotely in a foreign country. Was just curious if it was even possible.

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
