Cambodian Riel (KHR)
Hire employees in Cambodia. No entity needed.
Usually, to hire in Cambodia, your business needs an entity. That means a local office, an address registered as a subsidiary, and an account with a local bank. All of this, plus navigating regional benefits, payroll, tax, and HR laws, can take months.
Cambodia also treats contractors differently than full-time employees, so misclassifying a contractor could lead to fines. Deel lets you hire employees in Cambodia quickly, easily, and compliantly. We even automate tax document collection, payroll, benefits, and more.

Employment Contract Details
Employment contracts in Cambodia can be both fixed or indefinite terms. It's common practice to provide a written employment contract in the national language, Khmer. The employee's compensation, benefits, termination requirements, as well as the salary and any compensation amounts are the main elements stated in an employment contract.
The contract should have primary information such as Kind of contract, passport, start date, end date, position, salary and other benefit, job description. Any element of an employment contract that fails to do so is considered invalid.
To be covered by the Labor Law, a person must: • perform work, be remunerated, and • be under the direction and supervision of another person.
