Hiring contractors in Macao can be a rollercoaster

Hiring contractors in Macao can be challenging, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the region’s labor laws. While it’s not illegal to hire independent contractors in Macao, it’s considered high-risk, as the region’s labor laws favor employment and it’s easy to misclassify workers. Employers also have to navigate the legal system of non-resident workers, who are increasingly common in Macao. But with Rippling, you can swiftly grow your global team while remaining compliant.
