Co-Ed Housing

Anonymous - Aug 24, 2018
Back to Ask the Experts

We have overseas deploying contracts where personnel are housed in off-base villas/apartments. We have looked up law to local areas regarding cohabitation, and understanding some countries do not allow males and females to be housed together if not married.

As a company, are we required to secure housing for both males and females (even if it will not be utilized the entire time of lease) due to the makeup of the team. In other words, do we need to have additional apartment/villa rented to ensure there is separate housing for males and female in the event the team deployed will be comprised of both males and females. Personnel change approximately every 90 days, but the lease is a minimum of six months.
