International Transfer

Congratulations on your international transfer to the United States. Please note this addendum is pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in your promotion letter. The listed benefits are available for your use for one (1) year from your relocation date to the United States.

Transfer to Host Country Employment
When you transfer to the United States, which is anticipated to occur prior to the end of this fiscal year pending receipt of your United States work authorization and considering any COVID-19 related delays, your employment in Canada will be terminated in Canada and any existing Canada employment contract will be cancelled. You will no longer be eligible for compensation, allowances and benefits, including health insurance and retirement plans, in your home country and instead you will be subject to the employment practices in the United States.

As part of your compensation package, you will be eligible to participate in the ADP United States Benefits Programs. Our Total Rewards Health Benefits Manager will provide more detail on these programs.

Service Date
Your service date of August 4, 1998 will be maintained as your most recent employment date with ADP.

Vacation, Holidays and Time Off
Your current annual vacation allotment will be commensurate with your tenure continuing as 30 days. Public holidays and personal time off will be provided based on the local practice in the United States.

Please speak with your home country HR regarding how any unused vacation days will be handled following your termination from home country employment.

ADP will cover the customary costs to obtain the appropriate work and residence authorizations for you and your spouse. ADP will assign a Company-approved immigration provider to support the application process prior to your localization. It is advised that you complete the required forms and paperwork needed for such applications as soon as possible.

Permanent Work Sponsorship
If desirable and available, ADP will provide support through a designated immigration provider to help you secure permanent residence status.

Global Mobility Benefits
You will be eligible for the following localization benefits:

Tax Filing Assistance
To assist you with the tax preparation process, ADP will offer you the services of a Company-designated global tax provider for tax returns in Canada, the UK, and the United States for the tax years related to your expatriate assignment (which includes all years where equity was granted while you were on an expatriate assignment). ADP will tax equalize where appropriate for certain equities that were granted during the course of your expatriate assignments in the UK and Singapore.

It is strongly recommended that you have a Company-paid consultation with the tax provider prior to your transfer. You are responsible for providing an accurate and comprehensive annual tax organizer in a timely manner to the tax provider. This will ensure that your tax returns are not late and will contain all required information for both your home and host countries.

Please note: ADP shall bear no liability for your failure(s) to deliver timely and accurate information and documentation to the tax provider and any tax liability stemming from such failure(s); provided, however, ADP will reimburse you for any penalties, interest, and cost of amending tax returns, which may occur, pursuant to an audit covering the years you are on assignment as it relates to employee compensation or your assignment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ADP shall bear no liability for any unreported/misreported income attributable to associate-induced error.

Lease Break Penalty
If you relocate prior to your UK lease end date and you incur a lease break penalty on your primary residence in the UK, you may submit the penalty (up to two (2) months’ rent) for reimbursement. You will need to provide a copy of your lease and a letter from your landlord documenting the termination cost.

Automobile Disposition
ADP will pay for either the lease cancellation fee or loss on car sale for one (1) car up to GBP 6,380. Eligible supporting documentation as described by your Global Mobility Manager must be provided. The sale must be at “arm’s length” to a recognized car dealer (for example, car sales to relatives will not be considered, but you could sell to a local car dealer or car resale company).

Before purchasing a home, it is recommended that you speak with your personal financial and tax advisor to understand the considerations associated with buying real estate in a foreign country.

Rental Commission

Air Shipment
ADP will cover the cost of one (1) air shipment in a “LDN” air container, 94.5 CF gross (holds ~500-625 pounds) in order to provide you with essential items before the arrival of your sea shipment. Due to carrier-imposed size and weight restrictions, ADP will not pay the cost to air ship bulky or excessively heavy items including, furniture, appliances, etc. Air shipments typically take from two to three (2-3) weeks to arrive (this timeframe should be considered as an estimate given the impact of the COVID Pandemic).

When air shipments are estimated at 150 pounds or less, you should consider taking the goods on the plane and checking them as baggage. ADP will reimburse reasonable checked baggage fees.

Miscellaneous Expense Allowance (MEA)
An allowance of USD 12,000, grossed-up, will be paid to you to cover miscellaneous expenses associated with your relocation.
