US Expansion Hub

Are you looking to engage with US clients to source permanent or temporary workers who have the right to work in the US?

We’ve got you covered. Our legal advisors, including our US/UK dual qualified lawyer, have experience in offering advice to recruiters who are looking for new opportunities and considering plans for international growth.

A world of opportunities

The US is an especially attractive market for UK recruiters due to the size of the economy, lucrative margins, talented workforce, and flexible employment regime. That said, the US is also a litigious culture, and it is absolutely essential that UK recruiters ensure that their terms of business are fit for purpose before they engage with their US clients.

Providing your UK terms which refer to Off-Payroll Legislation, the Conduct Regulations or AWR, for example would not make a good first impression as none of this legislation is relevant when placing temporary workers in the US. It is also of crucial importance that the liabilities, indemnities, and choice of law clauses are drafted in a pro-agency manner.

Supporting your US recruitment expansion plans

All of our model contracts include drafting notes and are designed to be used across all 50 states with the caveat that certain clauses may need amending in specific states.

Whilst drafted in a pro-agency manner, the provisions are compliant with both state and federal law and presented in US format and style. The contracts are designed to allocate risk appropriately, to protect your UK business and to allow effective enforcement should the need arise.
