Hiring contractors in Uganda can be a rollercoaster

According to the World Bank, Uganda’s economy is expected to grow more than 6% a year in the immediate future. If you want to hire one of Uganda’s 46 million residents as an independent contractor, you have to comply with the Ugandan Employment Act and ensure you’re not misclassifying workers. Rippling can help you grow your global team with confidence—all while paying contractors in their local currency of Ugandan shillings.
