Who do I work for?
Deel acts as the intermediary between you (the employee) and the company you're working for.
Deel engages with both parties using separate agreements.
While you perform your professional duties at the company, you are technically hired and paid by Deel, through a hiring model called "Employer of Record".
An EOR enables companies to legally work with employees in another country without setting up an official, registered office in that country or region.
Why is there no mention of equity or stocks in my contract?
Since your employment contract is with Deel, any equity grants or stock options offered by your company will need a separate agreement between you and them.
How is Intellectual Property (IP) managed?
Even though your Employee Agreement (EA) states all IP is due to Deel, we have an agreement with the company you work for through Deel called a Master Service Agreement (MSA).
This enables them to receive credit for any work performed while working at Deel.
What about equipment?
Your client is able to lease equipment through Deel for you to use during your employment.
The Deel Equipment contract ensures that your client is managing equipment as compliantly as possible, with a greatly reduced risk of misclassification.
Equipment rental contracts can be created during the creation of your employment agreement, or added later to your agreement after you have started working.
There is no option to buy the equipment after the rental period ends.
