Cambodia Hiring

Hiring is an important aspect of any expansion. Your employees help run your company smoothly each day, and you need talented international candidates to help your subsidiary succeed. Globalization Partners simplifies hiring through Cambodia hiring outsourcing services. We can either find the right employees for you or hire your preferred candidates and assign them to work for you. Ultimately, your employees will have a better hiring experience, become productive sooner, and meet all local labor laws.

How to Hire Cambodian Workers

Cambodia requires that you hire all Cambodian employees under a fixed- or indefinite-term employment contract. Fixed contracts must be in writing and cannot extend longer than two years. Indefinite contracts can be oral or written, but we recommend drafting a strong written contract in Khmer. You can also hire employees under a probation period no longer than three months for regular employees, two months for specialized employees, and one month for unskilled employees.

All contracts should include important employment terms such as benefits, compensation, termination requirements, severance pay, and more. You should also make sure salary and compensation amounts in the contract and offer letter are in riel instead of another currency.

Cambodia’s Employment Compliance Laws

Once you understand how to hire Cambodian employees, you need to make sure you’re meeting the country’s employment compliance laws during your employees’ tenure. For example, employees typically work Monday through Saturday for a maximum of 48 hours a week. Collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) and trade unions are common and may stipulate separate Cambodia employment compliance laws that you must follow for your industry.

How to Onboard Employees

Onboarding employees is largely left up to companies. Since every company is different, you should find a way to onboard your employees that matches your company’s culture, brand, and goals. We recommend reviewing employment contracts with employees on their first day or week to make sure all terms are acceptable. Other steps you can take to help employees feel more comfortable include:

  • Providing any job training that can help employees succeed
  • Traveling to Cambodia for the employee’s first week
  • Onboarding multiple employees at one time
  • Going over any other important company documents

Benefits of Cambodia Hiring Outsourcing Services

If you expand to Cambodia the traditional way through setting up a subsidiary, you must incorporate before you can hire Cambodian employees. The entire process can take weeks or months before you’re ready to fill your open positions, leading talented candidates to search for other jobs.

Our Employer of Record service enables us to hire employees who will work on your behalf without the need to establish a subsidiary. You can feel confident that all your employees will meet Cambodia’s employment compliance laws and start working for your team in just a few days.
