Hiring in Cape Verde

When it comes to establishing a workforce in Cape Verde, international businesses have two primary options. The first is to undertake the arduous process of establishing a local entity—a task that demands an intricate understanding of Cape Verde’s employment laws, taxation, and other bureaucratic requirements. The second, more streamlined option, is to utilize an EOR service such as Breedj. 

Our full-scope services handle everything from talent sourcing to employee onboarding, contract negotiations, and managing payroll. This comprehensive approach allows your business to focus on growth and market penetration while leaving the complexities of local employment compliance to us.

Social security in Cape Verde

Social security contributions are an integral part of employment laws in Cape Verde. Employers must contribute a percentage of an employee’s gross salary towards social security, which is then channeled into various funds such as retirement, healthcare, and unemployment benefits. Non-compliance with these laws can result in hefty financial penalties and legal complications.
