There are several employee types on Deel, including:
When reviewing your contract:
You can review the language of your contract agreement to determine your employee type.
You are an EOR employee if you see your worker role listed as EOR , EOR - Annual, or EOR - Hourly.
You are a Global Payroll Direct Employee if your contract states Direct Employee - Payroll.
You are a Deel HR employee only if the worker type is simply Direct Employee.
What are the differences between employee types?
If you are an EOR employee, then technically speaking Deel is your employer and we serve as the Employer of Record. In more practical terms, Deel acts as the intermediary between you (the employee) and the company where you perform professional work.
While we run payroll and ensure that you receive your salary on time, we also have additional responsibilities because we are your legal employer. This includes ensuring compliance with local laws and labor regulations and performing other administrative and HR tasks.
Direct Employee - Payroll
If you are a Direct Employee - Payroll, then Deel runs your organization’s payroll but we are not your legal employer of record.
Your employer has created a legal entity and has hired you directly.
Our job is to process your payroll and deliver payslips on time once your employer submits and approves a payroll package. If your country mandates end-of-year tax documentation, we will also send those forms to you.
Where available, your employer may allow Deel to pay employees directly on their behalf. However, in some countries this is not a compliant option and your employer will pay you directly from their bank while we provide detailed documentation.
If you are a Direct Employee, then you are legally employed and paid by your company, but you are managed on the Deel platform. Your company uses Deel as its Human Resources Information System (HRIS) and manages employee contracts on Deel.
If you are a PEO Employee, you are legally employed by both your organization and Deel; but you are paid and managed on the Deel platform.
A PEO is a Professional Employer Organization that outsources payroll and HR duties to small businesses.
Deel PEO is a co-employment solution and this worker type is available only for employees in the United States.
