I have applied for a Job with a UK company that is exclusively in the UK but the position would be in US and Canada with minimal [Training] time in UK proper. Would US or UK employment laws apply, or is it voluntary? What taxes would I have to pay in UK? Would any UK benefits be available?
II would reside in the US. The Company is only in UK. For the primary position applied for. So back to the original question. Would I anticipate them following UK employment laws and providing me a contract within 2 months, or would they operate like the US and just be 'At-Will' employment.
I'm a US Citizen, residing in the US. Sorry. I didn't realize I wasn't being clear.
