Mongolia is a landlocked country bordered by Russia in the north and China in the south. This Central Asian expanse is filled with breathtaking landscapes of rugged plains and rocky outcrops. The vast swathes of inhospitable land throughout Mongolia make it the world’s most sparsely populated country. Geography aside, Mongolia is rich in history. This proud nation is the birthplace of Genghis Khan and his empire —the largest in human history.

In modern times, the Land of the Eternal Blue Sky has an economy dependent on resources (particularly solid minerals), as well as agriculture, and tourism.

Grow your team in Mongolia with Remote

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

Risks of misclassification

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

Employing in Mongolia

Workers rights in Mongolia are protected by the Mongolian Constitution and the Labor Code of 1999, both of which guarantee equal pay for equal work and protections against discrimination based on age, religion, gender expression, and race.

Common questions that could come up during the hiring process include the minimum wage, overtime rates, and guaranteed paid time off. Remote can help you offer a complete, competitive, and compliant benefits package to your employees in Mongolia.

Minimum wage

The Mongolian minimum wage is currently fixed at MNT660,000 per month.
