We Own Entities In All 50 States and Canada So You Can Hire Without The Cost, Time and Effort

To hire a remote employee, you need to open a local entity where they live. This takes a long time, costs a lot of money and creates ongoing admin as you navigate local benefits, payroll, taxes and compliance. Your business can also get into some trouble if you don’t properly comply with local laws.

We handle the entire local employment process, taking care of all the compliance, payroll and HR admin, while the employee works for your buisness just like the rest of your team.

We Handle The Compliance

We take care of everything to ensure you’re compliant with local requirements including taxes, social security, minimum wage, termination requirements, and more.


Airtight employment

It's our liability, not yours

Florence Del Carpio

O’Reilly Media, Canada

We had people onsite who we felt may not qualify as independent contractors. We didn’t need them to become permanent employees. We needed a middle ground.” O’Reilly continued to use the same workers – but they became employees of HR Options, so their employment was fully compliant. HR Options pays these employees from its own payroll and handles onboarding, benefits, HR support and termination.
