Hiring contractors in Zambia can be a rollercoaster

Zambia has one of Africa’s fastest-growing economies, making it a great place to look for talented independent contractors. But hiring a contractor in Zambia can be complex for global businesses unfamiliar with Zambian labor laws. You have to classify your workers correctly (as contractors, agents, service providers, or employees), and determine whether they have a contract of service or a contract for service. But with Rippling, you can grow your global team quickly while remaining compliant.
