I am looking for a job and I am based in Europe. After a successful application to a US based company, and a chat with the owners in which we talked about perks, full time permanent employment, etc. for a remote work position I received a job contract that was not what I expected.
It is a contractor role, per hour, renewable every semester, without any of the rights I'd expect such as sickness or holiday pay, and not even a guarantee on the amount of hours I'd be employed.
I have no intention of taking this offer unless it's way more favorable to me, and this is not a standard offer for the company. It is a remote first company with many US based, normally employed persons.
What I would like to know is if this kind of contract is the best I can expect for a US-to-Europe remote position, and if not, some advice on how to negotiate a normal employment contract instead.
