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 duties at the company, you get hired and paid by Deel.
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 the 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.
Does Deel provide equipment?
Due to compliance, we are unable to provide employee equipment. However, you can purchase whatever you need to get the job done and expense it through Deel.
