Mauritania – Employer of Record

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Globalization Partners provides employer of record services for clients that want to hire employees and run payroll without first establishing a branch office or subsidiary in Mauritania. Your candidate is hired via Globalization Partners’ Mauritania PEO in accordance with local labor laws and can be onboarded in days instead of the months it typically takes. The individual is assigned to work on your team, working on your company’s behalf exactly as if he or she were your employee to fulfill your in-country requirements.

Employment Contracts in Mauritania

In Mauritania, employment contracts can be oral or written, but it is best practice to put a strong, written contract in place, in Arabic, which spells out the terms of the employee’s compensation, benefits, and termination requirements. An offer letter and employment contract in Mauritania should always state the salary and any compensation amounts in Mauritanian Ouguiya rather than a foreign currency. The employment contract template is part of the service with Globalization Partners; no need to draft a separate template if you use our employer of record and PEO service in Mauritania.
