Adding an International Work Location:
4. All Done. Easy as riding a bike!
Adding a new employee that works internationally is almost identical to hiring a regular employee. Here are the few exceptions:
1. Work Location: You will need to already have an international work location setup in GoCo (see above on how to add this). During the new hire wizard, select the international work location that applies to the employee.
2. US Specific Forms: After assigning an employee to an international location, GoCo will automatically exclude W-4, I-9, State Withholding forms from being assigned to the employee. If you need to send these to the employees, you will have to manually add them either through the new hire wizard or through the employees profile directly.
3. Employee On-boarding: When the employee is asked to onboard with GoCo, everything will look and feel the same with the exception of their SSN or Tax ID number. Employees assigned to international locations will now have the option to check off a box ("I don't have an SSN") that allows them to bypass this step.
If you have an existing employee that you need to update to an international location, it is going to be the same as if you were simply updating their work location!
