Trinidad and Tobago Hiring

When you expand to a new country such as Trinidad and Tobago, you have to focus your time and energy on numerous tasks. However, one of the most important is hiring employees.

As the Employer of Record, we’ll be responsible for meeting all Trinidad and Tobago employment compliance laws, while you focus on running your business.

How to Hire Trinidad and Tobago Employees

Hiring Trinidad and Tobago employees must start with an oral or written employment contract that’s either express or implied. The country’s Industrial Court typically decides if a person falls under the “worker” or “employee” category and if they need an employment contract. Typically, terms and conditions under which an employee works can be located in an individual employment contract, a collective agreement, or by the country’s legislation.

You can hire employees using a fixed-term or permanent contract in both the public and private sectors. If you want to subcontract specific tasks or projects, hire employees on a fixed-term basis. You can also hire employees under a probation period. The defense force, civil, prison, police, and fire services industries have specific legislation dealing with probation periods. Typically, private sector employees can determine their own probation period terms with their employer.

Trinidad and Tobago Employment Compliance Laws

Every country has its own employment compliance laws you must follow. Trinidad and Tobago requires you to register all new employees with the National Insurance Board (NIB) if they have not previously registered. You must complete this process within the first seven days of employment.

All employees also need to register with the Board of Inland Revenue (BIR). There’s no mandatory time period to complete this task, but we recommend workers register as soon as they become an employee for the first time. New employees also need to have the TD1 form from the Board of Inland Revenue to start work.

How to Onboard New Employees

Onboarding new employees successfully is important to make sure they feel comfortable with your company and their position. Make sure employees sign all applicable documents before starting, and provide a training program to ensure they’re prepared for their daily tasks. You can also create events for new employees to get to know each other if you run a small subsidiary.
