Hiring contractors in Brazil can be a rollercoaster

Brazil is ranked as one of the easiest countries in the world for doing business, but hiring contractors there can be daunting if you aren’t familiar with Brazilian labor laws. You have to classify them correctly and collect tax forms if they’re from one of the many countries with whom Brazil has a tax treaty. Keep in mind that labor claims are extremely common in Brazil—including worker misclassification claims. But with Rippling, you can grow your global team quickly and compliantly.
