Yes, ours is a pre-paid monthly service. The price of an employee depends on the nature of your work, plus the years of experience and qualifications that you are looking for in a candidate.
The fee for the 15-day notice period has to be paid in advance along with the first month's invoice. This is your 'one-time' cost.
The ballpark figure for the cost of hiring a dedicated virtual employee in any domain or field on a monthly basis would be between $1095-1995/month. But it depends on the job requirements, as well as qualifications and experience of the candidate.
Our preferred mode of payment is Wire Transfer.
We take the first payment before the employee starts work. Thereafter, you are invoiced on a monthly basis. We require payment for the employee to be made before the start of the next month of work. For instance, if an employee starts his first day of work on the 1st of January, then for the next month's payment, we require receipt of payment before the 1st of February.
For any position you are looking to fill, Virtual Employee provides you with resumes of several candidates as well as their individual price. The quoted price attached to any resume is the full and complete cost for the entire service; including office space, recruitment, HR, management, customer support, hardware, infrastructure, and a dedicated employee, etc.
There are no hidden charges. However, there are three exceptions to the rule above:
In such cases, the client will be charged a setup fee.
The fee for the 15 days notice period (to terminate our services) is paid in advance (together with the first months's invoice) before the employee starts working for the client.
The payment is required in advance because we enter into a legally binding employment contract with the employee you hire. As per the employment laws in India, VirtualEmployee.com is legally liable to provide the employee you hire with a paid notice period while terminating the services.
It is only after you have interviewed and selected a candidate you want to hire that we require a receipt of the first month's invoice before the employee starts working for you (the client).
We are a pre-paid service, which means you need to pay before you start the service. Once you have found the resource you are looking for, and would like to hire them we would require payment for the 1st month's invoice, the 15-day notice period fee along with a copy of the signed contract before they start working for you.
