The Republic of Honduras (República de Honduras) is Central America’s second-largest nation and is bordered by Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. While the island nation is famous for its breathtaking landscape that’s dotted with mountains, rainforests, and well-preserved Mayan ruins, there’s even more to Honduras than meets the eyes.

Honduras is rich in natural resources and is famous for its tropical fruit, sugar cane, and coffee that’s exported across the Americas.

Grow your team in Honduras with Remote

Looking to employ workers in Honduras? Companies hiring in Honduras must either own a legal entity in the country or work with a global employment solutions provider, usually one that provides employer of record services.

Remote can employ your team in Honduras on your behalf through our local legal entity in the country and handle payroll, benefits, taxes, and compliance for your Honduras team. You can also pay contractors now in Honduras with Remote in some currencies (talk to an expert now for full details).

Risks of misclassification

Honduras, like many other countries, treats self-employed individuals or contractors and full-time employees differently. Misclassification of contractors in Honduras may lead to fines and penalties for the offending company.

Employing in Honduras

We can help you get a new employee started in Honduras fast. The minimum onboarding time we need is only 7 working days.

Provisions for employee protections and workers’ rights are spelled out in the Honduran Constitution as well as across several government statutes, including:

  • The Honduran Labour Code

  • The National Program of Employment Per Hour, and

  • Bylaws and Depositions of Social Security & Minimum Wage

Employees in Honduras enjoy protections against discrimination based on age, religion, gender expression, and race.

Onboarding Time

We can help you get a new employee started in Honduras fast. The minimum onboarding time we need is only 4 working days.

Our team ensures your employees are onboarded and paid as quickly as possible while keeping your business compliant with all local employment legislation. The minimum onboarding time begins after the employee submits all required information onto the Remote platform. The onboarding timeline is also dependent upon registration with local authorities.

For all non-nationals of the country of employment, the Right to Work assessment (if applicable) will add three extra days to the total time to onboard. There may be extra time required if we need to follow-up on the right to work assessment.

Please note, payroll cut-off dates can impact the actual first day of employment. Remote has a payroll cut-off date of the 10th of the month unless otherwise specified.
