No. All Country Managers agree to work as self employed and independent agents. The agent business at Scouting Team is a commission only business and does not guarantee any payments or salaries.

Therefore he has to finance his own domestic network as well as is responsible for his own staff, if he employs any. He also is responsible to pay his own Social security, medical care and taxes, if required.
