For companies who are growing international operations, with expansion comes challenges.
Often an organization will need to improve quickly and with flexibility. You may start to require resources in each of your international locations to assist with the respective operations.It can be attractive to consider hiring overseas contractors to rapidly ramp up a global team.
However, many companies struggle with the different regulations in each country regarding hiring foreign contractors. Additionally, you need to be aware of the laws in each country regarding independent contractor status. For example, you could face penalties if your foreign independent contractor works in such a way that they are legally classified as an employee.
Moreover, there may be cultural differences in contractor work styles that you might not be expecting.
