GLOBAL EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

HR Compliance Worldwide

As a global Employer of Record (EOR), our aim is to help global companies like yours understand the applicable employment rules and regulations in 150+ countries and support you in navigating the complexities of compliance everywhere.

While compliance in international employment is challenging and can never be guaranteed, we’re there to support you along every step of the way.

What is regulatory compliance?

Regulatory compliance is the adherence of businesses to the laws, regulations and guidelines relevant to its business processes. It’s a cornerstone of good governance for all businesses. 

Regulatory compliance management essentially involves embracing the spirit of legal compliance. Companies need to make sure every aspect of their business is operating according to local and international law. You’ll be doing this for your business as a whole already, looking at issues like business law, data protection and tax.

In terms of international employment, this means understanding local labor law in all countries where you’re employing and how it applies to you. Non-compliance, whether intentional or not, can hamper your business operations, your ability to raise funding rounds and impact your employee retention. Targeted regulatory and compliance measures can help you mitigate the risks and costs of non-compliance in advance.


HR compliance services

Managing regulatory compliance for an international team of employees can be challenging.

We support you in your regulatory compliance management with our team of experts and international partners. We clarify the complexities of local labor law in 150+ countries and what these mean for you.

Compliant labour law contracts

We provide you and your talent with employment contracts that check all the legal compliance boxes. To make your international employment process fool-proof, we ensure that all contracts meet the requirements and standards of labor law wherever your talent is based. This can include the right benefits, statutory leave, overtime regulation, working hours, salaries, amongst many other particulars.

Benefits

Providing proper benefits that meet local employment law standards is essential as a global employer. Countries determine what kinds of leave employees can take, as well as their social security, healthcare and pension entitlements. We’ll assist you to build benefits packages for your global talent that are attractive and meet local requirements.

Termination

Terminating an employee can be a difficult process for both you and your employee. Our team can help you make sure you’re doing everything correctly, according to local employment law. This’ll include checking things like whether your grounds for termination are compliant, if severance payment is due, and how to communicate the termination to your employee. We’ll help ease the process and ensure you don’t make yourself liable to non-compliance charges.

Onboarding

While onboarding is generally an HR process, you’ll still need to tick a couple of boxes to ensure you are onboarding your new hires compliantly. This’ll include things like checking where your talent are based, whether they have the right to work, review of ad-hoc employment contract requests and providing any mandatory home office equipment in line with workplace health and safety responsibilities. We’ll help you ensure you’re onboarding your new talent compliantly wherever they are based.

International requirements

When hiring a global team, regulatory compliance also means employing in compliance with labor laws internationally. We offer support in managing the complexities of international employment including:

  • Supplementary pay and discretionary bonuses
  • Exchange rate agreements for inflationary currencies
  • Flexible or part-time work agreements
  • Performance and disciplinary issues including issuing disciplinary notices and supporting with performance improvement plans

Local partnerships model

Our in-house team of HR experts work with local employment and legal partners to ensure your team is fully aware of current and changing regulations wherever your global team members are based. With our partners we offer thorough guidance and help you plan in advance of any changes to local labor laws. Our partners are based in all countries where we operate across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North and South America, and the Pacific. No matter how complex the issue, we’re fully equipped to help you employ compliantly wherever you choose.

How does regulatory compliance work?

Regulatory compliance management means having a defined structure in place to understand and review legal compliance risks and requirements for your business at all times. In terms of employment compliance, this can include:

  1. Continuous assessments of your current and future regulatory risks
  2. Updated information on new regulations in all countries where you are employing
  3. Compliant employment contracts for all employees
  4. Compliant benefits, social security and leave for all employees
  5. Compliant international payroll
  6. Developing a risk-based compliance monitoring system

Together, these regulatory compliance solutions can help you monitor your business’ legal and regulatory compliance at all times, anywhere in the world.

Benefits of regulatory compliance

A compliance system is crucial for your business to operate smoothly and retain both employees and customers. The benefits of legal and regulatory compliance include:

  1. Mitigate risks: a solid regulatory compliance solution will help you mitigate risks, like fines or legal claims due to non-compliant employment practices. Legal proceedings are not only financially costly, but they also absorb invaluable management time. 
  2. Efficient operations: by mitigating non-compliance risks in advance, legal and regulatory compliance can help your business operations run uninterrupted. This means greater efficiency and sustained output.
  3. Reputation: businesses with a proven track-record of regulatory compliance are also much more likely to retain old and attract new customers and employees. Meeting the demands of legal and regulatory compliance will help you build your brand reputation as a reliable business and a good employer.

What is labour law?

Legal and regulatory compliance means businesses have to employ in accordance with local labor law. Labor or employment law refers to the legal regulations and requirements surrounding employment and working practices. Labor law functions to mediate the relationship between employers, employees, trade unions, and the state. They are there to protect employees’ individual rights as workers, while also providing direction and regulations for employers when dealing with their employees.

As a global employer, you’ll need to be aware of the relevant labor laws in all the jurisdictions where your talent is based. For holistic regulatory compliance management, you will need to employ in accordance with employment laws internationally.
