While no overseas company would expect an employee to encounter legal trouble on business in the United States, it occasionally happens. Swift and sure action is needed to resolve the employee’s U.S. legal problem and to minimize the damage the matter might cause to the employee’s ability to travel to the United States to conduct the company’s business. This article is the first of a three-part series discussing possible scenarios and outlining the basic steps a company should take when an employee is arrested on a minor criminal offense in the United States. Part 1 addresses the company’s need to understand the nature of the employee’s criminal problem.

Part 3 will discuss approaches to minimize the possible negative effects of the event upon the employee’s ability to travel to the United States in the future.
