This guide explains how to hire a full-time employee with Deel.
Obtaining an Employment Quote
First, you will need to request a quote. The quote considers employer costs, including mandatory contractual benefits, taxes, and any other fees the local government may require the employer to pay when hiring an employee in a particular country.
The total employer cost will vary according to the employment, specific state or province, and, of course, the employee salary.
For example, in Canada, the employer cost will cover the Canada Pension Plan, Employment Health Tax, Parental Health Benefit, and Workers Compensation Insurance.
Learn more about the quote process by reading: How to review your quote.
Review & Sign the MSA & SOW
After you have reviewed the quote, you will see the Master Services Agreement ("MSA") and the Scope of Work ("SOW") documents. You will then proceed to sign the agreement on the platform. Signing finalizes the Deel agreement, prompts the deposit payment, and starts the Employee Onboarding.
See more about the MSA and SOW here.
Paying the Deposit and First Payment
Once you have signed the documents on the Deel platform, the first invoice will be available for you to make a payment.
Your Deel dashboard has an overview of the deposit and first payment breakdown. You can pay using an existing or a new payment method. Check out this article on payment methods here.
Once the MSA is signed, we begin the Employee Onboarding Process. Deel sends the Employee Agreement (EA) to the employee at the start of the Employee Onboarding process.
The employee receives the EA, for signature, via the employee app. At the same time, you will receive an update on the status by email. We will contact the employee to upload all required onboarding documentation. Once you pay the deposit, we will countersign the EA.
In countries where medical insurance is available, the employee will receive an email invitation to begin the health insurance enrolment process (in the US and Canada, for example).
