Why choose an Employer of Record (EOR) to hire abroad?

EOR services can actually be more affordable than hiring employees directly, as they provide cost savings on benefits, payroll taxes, and HR administration. Plus, you can reduce your risk of fines and penalties from noncompliance with local labor laws.

What is an Employer of Record (EOR)?

An Employer of Record is a third-party organisation that takes on a significant amount of the work involved when you want to hire abroad. An EOR does not recruit, but gets involved in the process once the company has selected a candidate.

By providing all the necessary information, an EOR makes sure that the customer acts compliantly throughout and moves within the safety of the framework that is provided.

Frequently asked questions

An EOR should have expertise in the local laws and regulations and handle all legal and compliance requirements on behalf of the hiring company.

The EOR is responsible for managing payroll, taxes, and benefits for remote employees, ensuring that all payments and deductions are made in compliance with local laws and regulations.

The EOR such as WorkMotion will provide a range of support services for both employees abroad and the hiring company. This can include onboarding and orientation, HR support, and legal advice. The EOR should also provide regular updates on the employment status of remote employees and any changes to local laws and regulations.

The cost of using an EOR varies and depends on factors such as the target country, the type of employee, and the services required.

The hiring company is responsible for the performance management of the remote employee, including setting expectations, providing feedback, and conducting performance evaluations. The EOR should provide support and guidance to the hiring company in these processes, ensuring that they are in compliance with local laws and regulations.

In the event of a dispute between the employee and the hiring company, the EOR should provide support and guidance in resolving the issue, ensuring that all parties are acting in compliance with local laws and regulations.
