CSU is looking for assistance with hiring and tax law issues in Rwanda. More specifically the questions being asked include: "Can you recommend colleagues specializing in international projects/law? Do we know any other U.S. universities working in Rwanda who may have already set up a legal entity in Rwanda to facilitate hiring U.S. persons on their projects?"
We have a PI ready to begin a 5-year NIH-funded household intervention study in Rwanda. The PI is hitting a roadblock in hiring a key team member. CSU's HR and legal have determined that international tax laws and CSU's employment rules will not allow for a CSU employee to work in a foreign location. HR has suggested that a solution may be for CSU to work directly with a third-party company to handle international payroll/tax issues. The PI has determined this won't work and wants to hire a position through her Rwandan colleague.
Any ideas? Suggestions? Assistance?Thanks in advance,
