About Company

Kenya is famous for its scenic landscapes and vast wildlife reserves teeming with lions, wildebeests, crocodiles, buffaloes, hippos, and flamingoes — like a savanna straight from the Lion King.

Beyond the incredible biodiversity, Kenya is sub-Saharan Africa’s third-largest economy. Nairobi is one of the world’s fastest-growing cities, now a thriving metropolis and a key center for trade in East Africa. Kenya enjoys strong performance in agriculture, transport, energy, tourism, and the services industry, and further growth is expected to power the Kenyan economy in the years ahead.

Grow your team in Kenya with Remote

Looking to employ workers in Kenya? Companies hiring in Kenya must either own a legal entity in the country or work with a global employment solutions provider, usually one that provides employer of record services.

Remote can employ your team in Kenya on your behalf through our local legal entity in the country and handle payroll, benefits, taxes, and compliance for your Kenya team. You can also pay contractors now in Kenya with Remote.

Employing in Kenya

The Kenyan Constitution of 2010 and the revised Employment Act of 2012 spell out provisions for employee protections and workers’ rights for Kenya’s workforce of 23.7 million.

Employees in Kenya enjoy protections against discrimination based on age, religion, gender expression, and race.

Common questions that could come up during the hiring process include minimum wage, overtime rates, and guaranteed paid time off. Remote can help you offer a complete, competitive, and compliant benefits package to your employees in Kenya.

Minimum Wage

In Kenya, the government-mandated minimum wage is defined by several variables, such as the industry an employee is engaged in, geographical location, age, and skill level.

Typically, the Kenyan minimum wage ranges from 13,572.90 KES ($122.89) to as high as 30,627.45 KES ($277.30).

Payroll Cycle

For customers of Remote, all employee payments will be made in equal monthly installments on or before the last working day of each calendar month, payable in arrears.

Onboarding Time

We can help you get a new employee started in Kenya fast. The minimum onboarding time we need is only 3 working days.

Our team ensures your employees are onboarded and paid as quickly as possible while keeping your business compliant with all local employment legislation. The minimum onboarding time begins after the employee submits all required information onto the Remote platform. The onboarding timeline is also dependent upon registration with local authorities.

For all non-nationals of the country of employment, the Right to Work assessment (if applicable) will add three extra days to the total time to onboard. There may be extra time required if we need to follow-up on the right to work assessment.

Please note, payroll cut-off dates can impact the actual first day of employment. Remote has a payroll cut-off date of the 10th of the month unless otherwise specified.
