Announcing our new free distributed HR toolkit

Given the events of the last year, it’s become more important than ever for organizations to adapt to a new world of work. As more people than ever are working remotely—and companies are increasingly launching with a remote-first model—it’s crucial that they have the tools they need to succeed and employ top talent wherever they work in the world.

Our new set of HR Tools include a contractor risk assessment utility, employment cost calculator, and legal starter pack that provides easy-to-use contract templates and critical compliance information. Learn more about each of these free tools below!

Employment cost calculator

The Oyster employment cost calculator helps employers assess the financial implications of employing an individual in more than 75 different countries. The cost calculator uses up-to-date local data to calculate gross annual salary in corresponding currencies, taxes, contributions, and Oyster fees. This calculator provides valuable insights regarding the employer cost, gross monthly and annual salary costs, and estimated taxes and contributions in advance of employment on a country-by-country basis.

Contractor assessment

The Oyster contractor assessment is a utility for employers and individuals who want to assess whether employees should be classified as a contractor or full-time member of staff. In doing so, it gives peace of mind to employers, who may face significant penalties and fines if they misclassify employees as they hire worldwide.

Country profiles

The Oyster country profile resource guide provides need-to-know employment information to help employers quickly get up to speed on a new country and avoid costly mistakes. Profiles include country-specific information such as working hours, notice period, termination and severance policies, IP protection and non-compete agreements, tax details for employers and employees, parental leave policies, and more.

Legal starter pack

The Oyster legal starter pack provides a library of downloadable standard legal documents required for employers to hire internationally. The Oyster customer experience team is also available to assist in organizing and customizing these documents.

At Oyster, we’re focused on making distributed workforces possible for companies of any size and helping them hire teams on a global scale. We’re excited that employers everywhere can now rely on the Oyster distributed HR toolkit to simplify and streamline cross-border hiring.
