Employing in Ecuador
Hiring in Ecuador has become a viable option for businesses due to the large pool of qualified workers. But just like any other country, you need important government laws and policies to keep in mind.
This section outlines the regulations you'll have to follow when operating in this South American market, such as working hour rules, an overview of some of the requirements for employment contracts, statutory benefits, and employment taxes for both companies and their employees.
Verbal and written contracts are accepted in Ecuador. The contracts may be in English or any other language that the employer and employee may be able to understand. The contract should mention the type of work to be performed, the payment method, the place where the work will be done, and the duration of the contract.
