    Wondering what your company does as it relates to the repayment process for a voluntary termination.  What do you include as part of an employee's repayment obligation? All charges associated with the relocation? Do you include management fees from the RMC,  just allowances or services (ex; temp living; lease canc.), tax gross up?

    Who manages seeking the repayment obligation?  Is it outsourced to a third party, is it manged by mobility, HR, RMC?

    Does your company reimburse for mandatory laptop purchases for International Schools? Our policy doesn't specifically call it out but as schools become more and more online focused, perhaps it is considered mandatory? The hesitation is that it is probably used for personal reasons as well, and may also have been a requirement in the home country.

    How does your company manage global new hires/employee transfers coming into the US without a US SSN with regard to pay and benefits?  

    At Covance we issue a temporary number while the actual number is pending receipt to effectively transition new hires and transferring employees onto the US pay and benefit programs without a gap.  We then adjust the payroll reporting records to report all earnings to the correct/actual SSN. The benefit programs are also updated once the correct SSN number feeds over to Mercer our benefits administrator.

    Any insight on how you manage this process would be greatly appreciated!
