If your company is currently doing business in Iraq or considering doing so, you MUST attend this webinar.

Contractors to the U.S. Government and U.S. Forces doing business in Iraq enjoyed full immunity from Iraqi law and its legal processes on a similar basis to American diplomats and American military forces. However, effective January 1, 2009, all contractors lose this immunity as the new U.S.-Iraqi Status of Forces Agreement comes into effect. What this means is that you and your Iraqi-based employees are now subject to:

  • Local labor and employment law
  • Income tax law
  • Visa and Residency requirements and
  • Criminal law
