For employers

What are statutory benefits?

Statutory benefits are benefits that are legally required to provide to employees. For example, many countries have social security programs in place that provide compensation for those unemployed, injured on the job, sick or with disabilities. 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. As local employees through Remote's local entity, your employees are guaranteed statutory benefits in their local jurisdictions and Remote handles all contributions related to these statutory benefits.

What statutory benefits are required in the location of my employees?

Statutory benefits differ from country to country and it's often a complex task to figure out what applies to your employees. Remote will inform you and help you with everything related to statutory benefits and local compliance when employing 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.
