The Oyster platform is thoughtfully designed to protect your business and the contractor, stay compliant around the globe, and reduce the time it takes to start working together. You can easily onboard a contractor using the following steps. 


  • You have Admin access to your company’s account.
  • You are logged in to the Oyster Platform with your admin credentials.


Follow these five simple steps to onboarding a new contractor:

  1. Complete the new hire form.
  2. Review the contract. 
  3. Invite your contractor to the platform. 
  4. Have your contractor sign up and complete onboarding. You can also share sign-up and onboarding help pages with your contractor to facilitate their onboarding.
  5. Lastly, sign and confirm the contract.
