Fast onboarding process, hassle free

Establishing a US entity can take months to complete. As the employer of record (EOR), we hire the employees who represent your company entirely, and you direct personnel activities.


Ensure a compliant US workplace

The US can seem like 50 countries in one – each with its own rules on hiring, termination, labour laws and structuring compensation packages. As local experts, we will reduce your compliance risks and help you stay within the rules by being your extended HR team.


Avoid costly mistakes

As an employer of record (EOR), we take on the burden, risk and legal responsibility of employing your US workforce. Our in-house experts shield your business from the risk of missing ever-changing regulations.

US employment law guidance

We offer direct access to in-country employment law guidance for those challenging employment situations.

Attractive employee benefits

We provide a comprehensive suite of the benefits US employees expect in accordance with all local laws and requirements.


Remain flexible

Boundaries shouldn’t get in the way of your business. With our EOR service, you can enter and exit the United States market as you wish without a long-term commitment.

Identify the opportunity

America is a vast country with great variety across its 50 states. We can help you determine where you can secure qualified talent. Once we understand your needs, your expansion advisor prepares an Employee Budget Projection which gives you visibility of the full costs of hiring and managing a US employee. We are here to guide your decision making.

Identify the candidate

If you already have an employee in mind, that is great! If you don’t, our expert Talent Acquisition team can work with you to find and recruit the right candidate for the position – and together, we develop a competitive compensation and benefits package which attracts and retains quality candidates.

Make the offer

Once you select the candidate, Foothold America works with you to develop the offer letter ( similar to an employment contract) and extend it to them. Once the offer is signed, the employee can begin in as little as one week. As the employer of record, our team ensures the employee’s right to work in the US, conducts background checks, submits income tax and employer tax deductions, and guides the employee through the online employee portal to enroll in benefits.

Manage the US employee

We manage payroll processing, social contributions, expenses, holidays, workers’ compensation and more whilst you drive the day-to-day activities of your assigned personnel. We are with you every step of the way and ensure continued compliance.

Foothold America was instrumental in helping my UK company employ field applications sales people in the US without having to set up a US subsidiary, which is the usual route for foreign companies. Foothold America facilitated this by employing the people we had chosen and handling all the employment, terms, salaries, visa, taxes, social costs etc. They then billed us monthly for these costs plus a reasonable service charge. As a result, we were able get going very quickly with our own people in the USA and at a much lower cost base.
