This article explains how clients can transfer employees to a Deel entity when it is needed for Deel EOR Consultants.
Why might an EOR entity transfer be appropriate? Certain countries like Germany have stringent employment requirements, restricting the duration of employment (employee leasing) under an EOR model. After this duration companies are not allowed to retain workers through the EOR company they hired.
To ensure continuous employment, clients can either transfer their employee to another entity they own or, if they do not have another entity, they may transfer an employee to Deel's other entity.
You will be notified on the platform in advance when an entity transition may be necessary.
