An Employer of Record takes care of all compliance aspects of employment, including payroll, taxes, statutory benefits, employment contracts and visa formalities. An Employer of Record has the license to sponsor an employee on behalf of a company that doesn’t have a entity in that given country.

EORs come with an increased co-employment or joint employment risk, where the client company and the EOR are both treated as the employee’s legal employers. A well-written and implemented contract will minimize this risk and please make sure to check the license of the EOR to make sure they hold the correct license to sponsor employee.

Most firms provide cost-effective EOR services.

Recruitment and outsourcing are two different approaches to filling vacancies in a company. The main difference between recruitment and outsourcing is:

Recruitment: Recruitment is the process of finding and hiring employees from outside the company to fill a specific job role or position. Recruitment is usually done by the company’s human resources (HR) department or a recruitment agency like Connect Resources. The company conducts interviews and selects the best candidate for the job, who then becomes an employee of the company.

Outsourcing: Outsourcing is the process of contracting a third-party company to perform certain tasks or services for the company. The third-party company is responsible for recruiting and managing its employees to carry out the contracted tasks or services. Outsourcing is usually done to reduce costs and improve efficiency, as the third-party company is responsible for all the administrative tasks related to employee recruitment, training, and management.

The processing time for an Employment Visa in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the type of visa, the sponsoring company, and the individual’s nationality.

Generally, it takes around 6-14 working days to process an Employment Visa in the UAE. The process involves several steps, including obtaining an entry permit or approval from the UAE Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE), obtaining a medical fitness certificate, and obtaining a residency permit (also known as a  Emirates ID card).

Once the individual has arrived in the UAE, they will need to complete additional paperwork and undergo medical exams before the residency permit can be issued. This process can take several weeks to complete, and the individual may not be able to start working until the residency permit has been obtained.

Typically, the visa process can take between 22 to 25 business days. However, please keep in mind that this estimated timeline is subject to change based on the government’s processing time for each stage. It’s crucial to adhere to all necessary steps and requirements to prevent any potential delays or complications during the process.
