What is an Employer of Record?
Why is my employer using one?
There are many reasons why an employer may choose to use an EOR. Chief among them is a desire to comply with the payroll and labour laws of the country in which you will be working. Using a reputable Employer of Record service to employ you properly and pay you correctly and on time, enables you to concentrate on successfully fulfilling your role.

Are Agility involved in my day-to-day management?
No. Your Line Manager is provided by the business you are going to represent. They will provide direction, training and performance management, as appropriate to your role. You will be embedded in the business you are going to represent, and your day-to-day experience will be exactly the same as a more conventional employment relationship.
Who do I go to if I have a question?
Many questions will be best directed to your Line Manager. However, the Agility team are pleased to assist with employee questions, especially as they relate to payroll or HR.
