An Employer of Record, or EOR like Lightsource employs your workers on your behalf. The EOR becomes the legal employer (on paper) by taking on the risks and responsibilities of back–office tasks like HR and payroll. Your U.S. employees still work and take direction from you. Our job is to remove the heavy lifting – you don’t need to invest in any infrastructure like getting a taxpayer id or establishing bank accounts.
Remote work has been embraced around the world, so more than ever there are highly qualified U.S.-based workers available to serve your global company.
Using an EOR allows global and domestic businesses a way to enter a new country or state quickly, legally, and efficiently. Working with an EOR like Lightsource Global relieves you of the time and expense of creating an office in the U.S. There’s no need to get registrations and bank accounts.
When you work with an EOR company like Lightsource, you trust us to handle very specific responsibilities. For example, we make sure employees are paid on time and in compliance with all local, state, and federal laws. You oversee your employees and direct work assignments, make scheduling decisions, and handle the many other day-to-day tasks as you normally would.
When you set up your team of American workers, there’s plenty of room to customize things like Paid Time Off (PTO) plans, bonuses, and commission structure.
