What they say

Global businesses trust Remote

  • "If it's up to our internal teams to understand local taxes, compliance and anything that's country-specific, it's possible that something will get missed and problems can happen. Remote has it covered, with the correct contracts, payroll, taxes, benefits and everything else along the way. That peace of mind is everything."
  • Having a specialist to settle HR and compliance processes makes it easier for my team to focus solely on expanding the business."
  • "We looked at a number of providers. It was important to us that our new partner had their own legal entities in the countries that we were considering. We didn’t want them to have subcontracted that relationship to somebody else. Compliance was, of course, crucial. And finally, it was important for myself and our employees that the UX was really good and easy to use."
  • “It was important to have a partner that we could really rely on when it comes to compliance, benefits, contracts, amendments, and so on for the specific hiring locations."
  • “Choosing Remote was truly a compliance and risk-led process because, if we were going to do it, we were going to do it right. It’s good ROI for us: Remote expands our talent possibilities so we can remove the location problem and make the best hiring decisions for the business.”

Learn more about Remote Watchtower

Yes, Remote Watchtower is designed to support businesses operating in multiple countries using our Employer of Record, Global Payroll, and Contractor Management products. Our platform covers over 70 countries, providing comprehensive HR compliance and labour law solutions that include legal changes, pay adjustments, and benefits shifts, tailored to each location's specific legal requirements.

HR compliance is the process of ensuring that an organisation adheres to a comprehensive set of regulations, laws, and guidelines that govern how employees should be treated within the workplace. This encompasses a wide range of areas including, hiring practices, workplace safety, wage and hour laws, anti-discrimination measures, and data protection.

The goal of HR compliance is to create a safe and equitable environment for all employees while protecting the organisation from legal risks and liabilities. Companies must stay informed about the latest legal requirements at the federal, state, and even local levels, and implementing policies and procedures that ensure these standards are met consistently across the organisation.

Effective HR compliance involves regular audits, maintaining accurate records, and updating policies and procedures as laws change. It's a dynamic process that requires ongoing attention and adjustment to adapt to new legislation and evolving best practices in human resources management.

By prioritising HR compliance, organisations protect themselves from fines, penalties, and lawsuits – and build a positive company culture that attracts and retains top talent.

Employment law is a broad area of law that governs the rights and duties between employers and workers. It covers a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, worker's compensation, employment discrimination, labour relations, and wage and hour requirements. This branch of law is designed to protect workers from unfair treatment and ensure a safe, equitable work environment, while also providing guidelines for employers on how to manage their employees legally and ethically.

A compliance issue may arise when an organisation is not in accordance with, legal statutes, regulations, standards, and ethical practices that apply to its operations.

This can include violations of labour laws, breaches of data protection regulations, or failure to comply with payroll reporting requirements.

Compliance issues can lead to legal penalties, financial losses, reputational damage, and can negatively impact employee morale and customer trust.

Addressing these issues promptly and effectively is crucial for maintaining the integrity and success of a business.
