Your employees will have a great hiring experience, and they can start working for you immediately. Plus, we’ll act as the Employer of Record, so we can manage the risk while you manage your company.
How to Hire Ecuadorian Employees
We recommend hiring employees in Ecuador using an employment contract. Although they can be oral or written, best practice is to use a strong, written contract in Spanish. You should include important employment terms, such as termination requirements, statutory benefits, compensation, and more. All compensation and salary amounts should be in U.S. dollars instead of another currency.
You can choose from several different types of employment contracts to hire Ecuador employees depending on the nature of their employment. The various choices include:
- Indefinite-term contract
- Eventual contract
- Occasional contract
- Seasonal contract
- Certain/specific work contract
- Task contract
- Contract by piece
- Work or service determined within the business line contract
Ecuador’s Employment Compliance Laws
Ecuador has numerous employment compliance laws for both resident and foreign employers. For example, all of your employees must be enrolled in social security within the first 15 days of the working relationship. You also need to register the employment contract with the Ministry of Labor using the Unified Worker System online. As an employer, you’re required to keep written records of all signed contracts in your office so that the Ministry of Labor can review the information at any time.
How to Onboard Employees
Every company has different goals and ways of operating, and you need to onboard your employees using a process that fits your unique operation. That said, you should take some steps to make employees comfortable and show them they’re valuable company players. Always review the employment contract with the employee during their first day or week to make sure everyone agrees with the terms. If the employee is stepping into a highly technical position, you may want to provide some job-specific training to make sure they succeed.
