Why can’t Family employ me in the country I live in? It depends on the country. In many countries, it is impossible to employ staff except through a registered entity. Family has registered entities in the UK, New Zealand and the US. In some countries it is possible to employ people without a registered entity, however this may be cost-prohibitive, especially if we do not already have an arrangement set up. In addition, Family makes practical decisions, in order to ensure that the time zones of relevant colleagues are compatible.
