Frequently Asked Questions
What is Boundless and how does it work?
Boundless makes it easy for companies to grow their internationally remote team. We do this by employing people on your behalf, being the local “employer of record” for the individual.
What does “Employer of Record” mean?
It means that Boundless is the legal employer of the individual, as far as their government, tax, and employment authorities are concerned.
We are responsible for:
- ensuring their employment is compliant with local employment laws
