ABSTRACT
The trend towards globalization engendered in part by the needs to stay competitive and to increase one's market share have brought with them a number of considerations for the development and implementation of fair human resources policies in multinational organizations. Local culture, laws, and political and economic factors are just some of the factors that must be considered at each locality. Although generic human resources policies and practices are of some value, they must be modified at the local level to take into account the particular cultural needs and legal requirements in each country. In addition, the human resources system must take into account the special needs of expatriates - employees working on a long-term or permanent basis in another country.
