Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Employer of Record service?

An Employer of Record (EOR) manages the legal, HR, tax and local compliance responsibilities of your employees in any country where you don’t have a legal entity.

An EOR is the legal employer, hiring your employees in a country using its local business entity. The EOR assumes the legal risks of an employer on your behalf, while you maintain control over your employees and business operations.

What are an Employer of Record's responsibilities?

If you partner with an EOR, they assume responsibility for a range of tasks, including:

  • Legal employment compliance

  • Payroll, pension and tax remittance

  • Visa, immigration and work permit sponsorship

  • Benefits customization and administration

  • Expense management

  • Money movement and payroll disbursement

  • Local support for employment matters

  • Partnering with customers to understand the local employment rules, including statutory vs. common practices

  • Advice on required notice periods and termination rules

  • Data insights on employment trends in global markets

What are the benefits of working with an Employer of Record service provider?

Partnering with an established EOR like Atlas provides numerous benefits, including:

  • Increased speed-to-market

  • More flexibility to scale operations up and down as needed

  • Cost savings

  • Compliance and risk mitigation

What's the difference between direct and indirect Employer of Record services?

An indirect EOR works with multiple third parties to provide local entity and payroll services across the countries it operates in. This complicated middle-man approach can result in slower times to market, higher administration costs, more touch points for every expansion country and more time spent managing vendors.

A direct EOR provider like Atlas owns its local entities entirely, avoiding third-party outsourcing. Our team is directly tasked with supporting your employees in their country of residence. This means that Atlas can assist you or your employees directly and immediately with local in-house support and expertise.

What is the difference between an EOR and a PEO?

A PEO undertakes certain HR tasks, such as benefits enrollment and payroll, and splits the risk with your company. A PEO supports your company through a co-employment agreement, which means that both the PEO and the company are employers. This may expose your company to additional compliance risks.

An EOR is empowered to employ staff in countries where your company lacks a legal entity. This means that your EOR partner is solely liable for the employees’ local tax and labor law compliance — including all onboarding and general administrative aspects of employment. This allows you to focus on your employees’ day-to-day work and growing your business, while your EOR partner manages all compliance matters.

What is HXM?

HXM is Human Experience Management. It's creating an empowering work experience for both employers and their talent – wherever they are based.

How quickly can I expand into a new country with Atlas?

As Atlas already has entities set up in more than 160 countries, it takes only a matter of weeks for customers to set up in a new country.

How long does it take to onboard an employee with Atlas?

Atlas can help you onboard a new employee in as little as 2 weeks, depending on the country.

Who will provide onboarding and ongoing support to new talent?

All Atlas worksite employees receive a dedicated HR Employee Relationship Consultant, who will guide them through their onboarding process and can be contacted for questions throughout their lifecycle at Atlas.
