Crew Employment & Payroll

Employing Seafarers is both complex and technical.

Any parties employing Seafarers have to ensure that they meet with all the relevant regulations and conventions for engaging staff.

There are serious repercussions for not employing Seafarers properly, but it’s easy to get contracts, administration and payroll wrong, inadvertently. Without the right framework for employment in place, there’s a significant reputational, legal and operational risk – not to mention a big headache to untangle it all.
