Employee of Record 

Hi there! Here we are again, ready to answer all of your answers about EOR. Let’s recap. What is an Employee of Record? An Employer of Record (EOR) is a third-party organization that hires and pays an employee on behalf of another company and takes responsibility for all formal employment tasks. This allows you to develop a global team in countries where you don't have a legal entity.

Therefore, you will be able to hire anyone, anywhere with the full-time employee model! How does that sound? And the best part is: You won’t have to go through all the boring, stressful paperwork. The full time employee is able to work full time for your company and be on payroll without you having to move a finger.  One important detail to note is that the company assumes taxes and labor responsibilities.

Costs And Payroll Risks

Hiring an international employee can be difficult and time-consuming. You'll need to set up contracts, deal with different legal systems, and provide benefits like health care or vacation days—the list goes on!

But honestly all this hassle is a thing of the past! With EOR services your team will be backed up by mentors that have the knowledge and know the value that both workers and companies have. Ontop is a worldwide, remote company. It doesn’t get much better than that considering the flexible hours it gives you. Work from where you want to and assume the responsibilities. But never forget that working remotely doesn't mean you have to raise a white flag! On the contrary, you’ll be able to honor your time, make schedules work and focus on what needs to get done with perfection. 

EOR enables companies in one country to hire someone from another country without having them become independent contractors by themselves first. Don’t worry, it's easy as it seems for your company. Everything happens online and Ontop has your back. 

The biggest difference with contractors (civil legislation) is that in the EOR there is a labor relationship regulated by tailored labor laws according to the employee country. Avoid problems when hiring abroad, Ontop guides you to have the right documentation and at the same time helps you reduce legal and operational expenses. Save time and money. Always.

Expanding a business can be complex. Naturally, companies should look for assistance when it comes to global HR, administration, and understanding how to onboard new employees in order to avoid legal risks while managing their workers worldwide.
