  • That law also states if a foreign company has a branch in Panama, that company is allowed to hire a maximum of 12% expatriates.

Results results impact

Results/Results Impact

  • Both companies are allowed to hire foreign employees.

  • Odebrecht is only limited in Panama by law to the percentage of foreign employees they can hire.

  • Hensel Phelps can hire as many foreign employees as needed as long as they are not undocumented workers.


Results results impact1

Results/Results Impact

  • The results of this report were that foreigners are a threat to the natives of Panama and the US.

  • Although, Panama’s law allowing companies to hire foreign employees attracts companies there to expand their businesses.


Results results impact2

Results/Results Impact

  • Differences

    • Odebrecht is a International company that operates in over 60 countries.

    • Hensel Phelps is only a US company.


Summary

Summary

  • This report was focused on the hiring of foreign employees, and how it may make or break the country.

  • When construction companies hire foreign employees or undocumented workers, it puts natives on unemployment.

  • With increased unemployment, sometimes leads to tax increase, etc.
