Key takeaways
  1. Workforce compliance is a complex area that can be affected by various factors such as workforce size, worker classification, work authorization, and business structure.
  2. HR professionals spend significant time and effort ensuring global team compliance, which can take away from more strategic or value-added activities.
  3. Deel’s Workforce Insight Reports provide a simple and effective solution for monitoring contractor and employee data, identifying any instances of non-compliance, and streamlining workforce management.

 As your workforce grows and expands internationally, your compliance risk also increases due to the many laws and regulatory compliance you must abide by. 

Deel’s Workforce Insight reports can assist you in this regard, alerting you to potential misclassification risks, expiring visas, and non-compliance with local labor laws such as minimum wages, benefits, and more. You can access these reports on the Deel platform or have them delivered to your email monthly, tailoring the results to your business’s unique concerns.

What problem does Deel’s workforce Insight reports solve?

Navigating the complex web of laws and regulations governing your global workforce can be daunting for both large and small businesses. The myriad of rules and regulations can impact your business structure, worker status, and tax obligations. For instance:

Permanent establishment risk 

Different countries and jurisdictions have their own laws and guidelines that determine what constitutes a permanent establishment (PE) status. Understanding and adhering to these regulations is crucial for any business operating globally.

For example, in Argentina, a foreign company is considered to have PE status if it has more than 50 employees working there for more than 183 days in a taxable year. In Canada, however, a foreign company triggers PE status if it has more than ten employees working there for more than 183 days in a taxable year. Both of these scenarios impact corporate tax obligations. 


Similarly, in some countries, what constitutes a contractor vs. an employee can change depending on how long a worker has been with the company, their responsibilities, and their degree of control over their schedule.

For instance, in Brazil, a contractor can work for a company under a fixed-term contract for a maximum of two years before the company must reclassify them as an employee. In Germany, a worker may need to convert to an employee if their income is primarily or entirely derived from the company or if the worker’s role is essential to the company’s operations.

Unauthorized workers 

Companies with globally mobile workforces must also consider immigration laws and regulatory requirements that govern visas, sponsorship, work permits, and employment authorization.

Organizations are responsible for ensuring their workers have the legal documentation to work in a particular country. They must stay informed about evolving immigration laws, visa expiration dates, and renewal procedures to avoid financial penalties and potential employee deportation.

Traditionally, companies would need an entire in-house compliance function to conduct regular internal audits and risk assessments to identify and address potential workforce compliance gaps. However, with Deel’s Workforce Insights, human resources can focus on more strategic activities while the software gets to work mitigating workforce compliance risks.
