Employer of Record in Ghana

Collaborating with an Employer of Record (EOR) can be a strategic choice. A Ghanaian EOR handles all employment-related tasks, ensuring compliance with local labor laws. This encompasses payroll and tax management, allowing your company to maintain control over operations while delegating administrative responsibilities.



Why use Ghana EOR?

Employers work with EOR partners for two reasons:1) to hire without a local entity 2) to remain compliant with labor laws in Cameroon.  


This is mainly because establishing an entity in Ghana can cost several thousand dollars and take several weeks for incorporation. 


Secondly, when hiring from the country, employers must be aware of labor laws in the country. Ghana’s labor laws have some unique aspects that may require working with compliance experts. For example, a daily minimum wage is set periodically after deliberations between government, employers, and labor unions. Secondly, trade unions play a significant role, especially in certain sectors. Workers have the right to form and join unions, and collective bargaining is prevalent.


Leveraging a Ghana EOR/PEO ensures accelerated market entry, compliant hiring at lesser costs.


To navigate this and ensure compliance, consider a Ghana EOR/PEO like Gloroots. We simplify hiring, manage compliance, and let you focus on your core operations, so you can benefit from Ghana's thriving economy.


EOR Costs in Ghana

The pricing for EOR/PEO services in Ghana is subject to factors such as the number of employees, the range of services required, and the complexity of the project. Generally, it includes a monthly fee per employee or a percentage of their salary. Additional costs might arise for supplementary services or tailored solutions.

Separation

Termination 

The termination process in Ghana is contingent upon the employment or collective bargaining agreement and hinges on the type of contract and the grounds for termination. Either the employer or employee can terminate the employment contract with written notice.

In cases where termination is perceived as unjust, employees can lodge a claim with the labor court, and in certain instances, they may have their employment reinstated.

In situations where employment is considered "at-will," either party can terminate the employment without notice at the end of the day. However, if the employment contract lacks an "at-will" clause, it's possible to provide compensation to the employee in lieu of notice.

Severance Pay

In cases of individual dismissals without economic reasons, there is no severance pay required.

When termination results from redundancy, compensation is determined through negotiations between the employer and the employee.

Notice Period

Notice periods in Ghana are as follows:

1. In the case of week-to-week contracts, seven days' notice is mandatory.

2. For employment contracts lasting fewer than three years, two weeks' notice or two weeks' pay in lieu of notice is necessary.

3. For contracts of 3 or more years, one month's notice or one-month pay in lieu of notice is required.

4. Contracts that can be terminated at will by either party may end at the close of the day without any notice.

Probation period

Probation periods in Ghana are typically specified in the employment contract or collective bargaining agreement.
