Basic facts about hiring in Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia & Slovenia

To hire in any of these regions, there are a few things you have to be aware of:

  • EU Data Protection – Europe has stringent legislation regarding data protection for employees and citizens. Navigating this area is crucial from the outset. As your Employer of Record, CroatiaTech will ensure your company’s compliance.

  • Termination of Employment – Each country has unique hiring and firing requirements and procedures. Contracts for each employee can be more stringent than in some Western countries.
  • Perks & Benefits – Understanding the minimum requirements or current market standards for each location is vital for attracting quality talent. Certain perks may be taxed differently, or in some cases, not taxed at all.

Hi! I am researching on the behalf of my potential employer (and I am not sure whether to write in Croatian or English). He is starting an IT security company in Germany (should be established by december) and we are looking for the ways he could legally hire me (ideally through student work contract).

What I didn’t get from your site is whether you could provide such service or are you exclusively hiring members of your own team?

If you can provide the service we want, could you give us ballpark estimate/range on what the pricing would be. We know pricing probably depends on different factors but just a rough range would be great.

Kind regards,
