What is an EOR service?

An employer of record (EOR) is a business that employs an individual on behalf of another company. This can be within the same country or, as is becoming increasingly common, in another country with different employment laws.

Is Oyster an EOR?

At Oyster, we provide global workforce management consultancy services through our global employment platform. As part of our Team Member service, Oyster is the legal employer of our customers' full-time Team Members.

In countries where Oyster does not have a direct entity, we typically use trusted employer of record vendors to manage Team Members who are employed there. In these cases, the vendor is the legal employer.

What’s the difference between a EOR and a PEO?

With an EOR, employees are not “co-employed” like they are with a professional employer organization (PEO). An EOR is the sole legal employer and hires an employee to perform services for a different company.

“Without a solution like Oyster, it’s not even worth the hassle. You just end up deciding, ‘We’re not going to hire there.’ It basically restricts you from getting access to talent. Oyster takes that all away. That’s what makes Oyster great.”

“The service is seamless, the communication is very good, and there’s definitely a lot of time and cost saved. The cost of using Oyster is less than what it would cost for us to deliver the same service using external consultants.”
