If we employ an individual in your country via EOR, who is the employer? To whom does the employee report?

The official legal employer is AMBACIA, your Local Employment Partner (LEP). AMBACIA will be responsible and in charge of paying the employee’s salary and mandatory contributions, to comply with and to adapt to changes of the local employment regulations.
You remain the employer from the function point of you: all requirements and delivery expectations linked with the role are settled, assessed and review by you with the employee. (non) performances are measured by you.

Your obligation is to provide the employee with clear instructions related to the job’s objectives, delivery objectives and reward schemes. The obvious obligation is to ensure the LEP to pay on time the employee’s salary and contributions.
AMBACIA must comply with the local regulations and cover all the required payments on time for the employee. AMBACIA must follow the changes and inform either the employee or you about legal and administrative changes, what might have some organisational or financial consequences in the working relationship.
As long as the benefits and regulations of the collective agreements are not in conflict with the local regulations, they can be applied, especially in terms of financial compensations. Of course, local contributions might apply.
If the employee is a resident in Croatia, he/she cannot receive part of the salary by you in one country and part of the salary in Croatia. Because double taxation of income will apply in Croatia.

For Employees

Do I have a right to paid leave?
Yes, during the calendar year, the worker has the right to exemption from the obligation to work with salary compensation (paid leave) for important personal needs (marriage, birth of a child, serious illness or death of an immediate family member, etc.). An employee shall be entitled to leave referred to in paragraph 1 of this Article for a total duration of seven working days per year unless otherwise regulated by a collective agreement, labor regulations, or employment contract.
