Need top U.S.-based talent fast?

You can quickly get the employees you want with our effortless U.S. expansion plan. With the Lightsource Global Employer of Record service you can hire experienced full-time, U.S.-based employees without having to establish a physical location stateside—or even file for an EIN.

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 backoffice 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.

Our already-compliant EOR service simplifies HR functions giving you quick access to the U.S. market.

As your legal entity, we:

  • Manage all aspects of hiring and termination
  • Create employment contracts
  • Ensure your U.S.-based employees are paid on time and in compliance with all local, state, and federal laws.
  • Give you ways to customize PTO plans, bonus structures, and commission schedules
  • Provide competitive health, retirement plans, and more
    top benefits
  • Handle tax deposits and filings

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.


We remove the barriers to U.S. entry and relive your pain points.
