Using Shield Geo Employer of Record Services in Puerto Rico

Compliance with local employment requirements is just one of the issues foreign companies face when employing staff in Puerto Rico. For companies which intend to employ their staff directly through their incorporated Puerto Rico entity, professional legal advice is recommended. Shield GEO provides an alternative path for companies to outsource the employment of their staff in Puerto Rico.

As a Global Employer Organization (GEO), Shield GEO acts as the Employer of Record and ensures the employment is compliant with host country regulations regarding employment. In addition, Shield GEO will handle payroll processing, tax and immigration. Using Shield GEO is the fastest and most cost effective way to deploy local and foreign workers into Puerto Rico.

The Shield GEO solution is an attractive alternative where:

– the company is looking to employ staff quickly

– the company doesn’t have an appropriately incorporated entity in Puerto Rico

– the company wants to work within a defined budget

– the company wants to limit its initial commitment in Puerto Rico

– the company needs help with tax, employment, immigration and payroll compliance in Puerto Rico

Shield GEO can contract directly with the company to employ and payroll their staff in Puerto Rico. Shield GEO supplies local employment contracts for the staff which ensure that local statutory requirements are met covering issues such as termination, probation periods, leave entitlements and statutory benefits. Shield GEO is able to advise companies how to cover local employment regulations whilst still providing consistent global employment policies.
