How to Decide if You Should Hire an Employee or a Contractor in a New Country


Nicole ForbesDeputy General Counsel

About this webinar

Innovative companies are hiring professionals anywhere in the world, especially in the last year. To fill open positions with highly skilled talent, the right candidates aren’t always within a company’s borders.

But when companies start to look internationally for talent, complications mount. What does it take to hire full-time employees in countries where the company does not yet have an entity? Is hiring a contractor better solution?

Classifying your workers correctly is crucial to staying compliant with local employment law, avoiding fines, and reducing risk as your company scales internationally.

This session will take you through a step-by-step assessment to guide you towards the right choice — the one that makes the most sense for your growing company.

This session will cover:

  • The basic questions you have to answer to classify a worker correctly.
  • The risks of misclassifying workers, with real-life examples.
  • How to transition workers from contractors to employees.

Global thinking. Global growth.
Let’s go.
