When comparing employer of record services, you should consider the breadth of global HR solutions they offer — like payroll and benefits administration, onboarding, and local taxes — as well as the thoroughness of their local compliance.
Only work with an EOR that owns its own local entity in the country where you want to hire. Otherwise, you may end up with your own workers employed by an unknown third party in a country where you have limited oversight or control over the quality of their experience.
In addition, your EOR should be able to provide exemplary protections for your intellectual property.
Without those protections, you could be drawn into uncomfortable situations and lengthy court battles related to ownership of your IP in different countries — a nightmare scenario for any business.
Here are a few questions you may want to ask:
An employer of record can perform a number of HR and legal functions, including:
Do you own an entity in this country, or do you outsource the employment and compliance to a third party?
How do you protect intellectual property and invention rights in this country?
Do you share employee data with any third parties?
Do you keep all employee documentation for employees in all countries in one easy-to-access hub?
