In a nutshell, this is what you need to know: In general, we support the statutory benefits that are required by law in each local jurisdiction we operate in. As full employees through Remote's local entity, your employees are guaranteed the statutory benefits in their local jurisdiction. For any extra benefits beyond the statutory benefits, Remote can arrange what you need and advise on benefits and perks packages.

What are statutory benefits?
Statutory benefits are those you are legally required to provide to employees. For example, many countries have legislation in place to ensure employers provide compensation for employees that are injured on the job. Sick leave and annual leave benefits are two other common statutory benefits mandated by national governments. Most often, contributions towards statutory benefits are made by employers as well as employees.
Remote takes care of everything related to the statutory benefits that are required by law for your employees through Remote.
What statutory benefits are required in the location of my employees?
Statutory benefits differ from country to country. Figuring out the specific statutory benefits required in different countries is a very complicated task. We handle this process for you, serving you with all of the relevant information you need to ensure local compliance whenever you employ through Remote.
Are there extra costs associated with statutory benefits?
Contributions towards statutory benefits are always included in the Total Cost of Employment (TCE) and we will never hide or surcharge any of this.

Will I be covered by social security programs in my location?
Yes, as a full employee through Remote you will be covered by local social security programs. Remote's local entity contributes on your employer's behalf to local social security programs as well as other statutory requirements.
