Oyster Platform Roles

Oyster’s global employment platform provides various roles to manage the access of all your users securely. Users can have multiple roles, which gives them the exact access they need and nothing more.

This article provides an overview of the roles, their function and limitations, and what data they can access.

All roles listed here have login access to the Oyster Help Center.

Disclaimer from our Legal team: It's important to know that the Team Manager role is associated with being a manager on Oyster's global employment platform. Per the Oyster Terms, this does not mean you are the manager of the Oyster Team Member. While you may have management oversight of a Team Member to ensure the services rendered meet your needs, we handle all employment-related management matters either directly or through an Oyster partner. Please bear in mind that Team Manager-level access to the platform is not reflective of your employment responsibilities with respect to an Oyster Team Member.
