Legal employer.

Thirdsail owns legal entities in Canada for you to hire employees though, so you don't have to set one up. We hire the employees and act as their legal employer. The employees then perform work for your company, as regular members of your team.
Employee management system

Employee management.

Thirdsail takes care of all the legal and administrative work starting with locally compliant employment agreements. After your employees are onboarded, we take care of payroll and arrange for benefits, all in their local currency and complying with all local regulations.

Stay in control.

While we are the employee's legal employer, you are still in control of the relationship. You make decisions on the nature of the role, compensation, projects, timelines, and terminations. We're here to help and support you.
