Employer of Record

We offer two options for Employer of Record Solutions. Both include all employer responsibilities.

One is All-Inclusive of any potential other employer costs (e.g. background checks, paid sick leave where applicable, benefits contribution if an associate enrolls, city specific taxes, etc.).

Both include the following:
- All employer responsibilities
- New hire onboarding and employment contracts
- Time and expense tracking
