Mobile Employee

In the context of stock compensation, a mobile employee is an employee who lives and/or works in more than one state and/or country after a stock grant. An employee working outside his or her home country is considered a globally mobile employee. For example, the employee may live in country A, work in countries B and C during the vesting period, and then exercise the grant (if stock options) while back in country A.

This raises special tracking and taxation issues for companies and individuals, as different states/countries may have claims on the source of this income. See related FAQs on issues related to moving between states and between countries.

See the Global Tax Guide for summaries of the tax treatment that applies to equity compensation in many countries throughout the world.
