Germany Employer of record Services

Helping Businesses Expand Into Germany With Expert EOR Services
Germany EOR Services - Proposal Request

Our employer of record (EOR) services supports your expansion into Europe's strongest economy. 

Known as a prime business location for automotive, engineering, healthcare and service industries and with one of the strongest economies in Europe, it is no wonder that Germany is an incredibly popular area for business expansion. 

While Germany's strong economy may be a welcome attraction for businesses, their strict employment laws can cause countless hurdles for expanding businesses. In fact, Germany's employment laws are known as some of the strictest in Europe and are perceived to be heavily weighted towards employees. They include:

  • Full pay for the first 6 weeks of sick leave
  • 20 days annual holiday entitlement
  • Strict limits around working on public holidays and Sundays
  • Written employment contracts required by law
  • Employees must not work more than 48 hours per week or 8 hours per day
  • Full paid maternity leave
  • Strict employment termination law to prevent unfair dismissal

Add to this that expanding businesses must acquire an AUG or temporary license and expanding into Germany can be challenging. Our Germany employer of record navigates Germany employment laws and visa requirements on your behalf. Therefore, you can focus on reaping the benefits of Germany's growing business sector, strong economy and new markets. 

What is an Employer of Record?

Sometimes known as a PEO, an employer of record becomes the new legal employer of your employee or workforce, taking the legal responsibility of employee management and HR from your shoulders when you are hiring in Germany. Put simply, a German employer of record will:

  • Facilitate employment contracts
  • Comply with German employment laws
  • Pay taxes 
  • Run payroll 
  • Organise employee benefits

While you are still responsible for the day-to-day management of your employee, an EOR ensures that you can expand into German without a legal entity or AUG license and with full reassurance that you comply with German employment legislation.

Why do I need an Employer of Record in Germany?

Germany is well-known for its strong worker protections and regimented labour laws. In addition, acquiring an AUG license can be a vague, complex route. Therefore, it can be incredibly easy for expanding businesses unfamiliar with Germany's processes to risk non-compliance.

Meanwhile, endeavouring to get to grips with various legislation and license requirements can take surplus budget, staff and resources not to mention extending your time to market. This is where our Employer of Record services come in. 

With extensive experience and expertise on Germany employment laws, a German EOR can save you time, money and resources when it comes to expanding your business. Therefore, you can remove the stress of employment laws from your shoulders whilst still reaping the benefits of Europe's strongest economy.
