What is a global contractor?
Contractors can provide critical expertise and experience to any business, and global contractors can be located anywhere in the world. Technically, they’re not employees and may work on a project or on a fixed-term basis. Global contractors allow businesses the flexibility to fill skills gaps or hire for short-term priorities. In most cases, global contractors are not eligible for employee-offered benefits. It is important to be mindful of misclassification risks when working with global contractors. Try out Oyster’s Employee Misclassification Analyzer for country-specific classification information to inform your worker classification decision.
