A PEO is a Professional Employer Organization. We handle the payroll, payroll taxes, onboarding, benefits, benefit enrollment, and more for your business while you focus on your company.
When a company joins a PEO, a co-employment relationship is created between the company, PEO and the workers of the company. The Professional Employer Organization assumes responsibility for duties related to human resources, workers' compensation, payroll, labor law compliance and employment taxes.
Using a Professional Employer Organization allows business owners and managers to focus on their core strengths, not worrying about the non-revenue related activities of employment. Many businesses don't have the internal expertise, capability, or desire to handle regulatory compliance, risk management, payroll, employee benefits administration and other employment related activities.
No. PEO’s normally do not recruit, train or provide staff to their client’s as do temporary staffing firms. We provide the onboarding, benefit enrollment, e-verification, and HR-related tasks for your employees.
No. PEO client companies and the PEO become partners in the co-employment relationship of their workers. The client retains responsibility for the day-to-day management of the workers. Clients maintain all "hire and fire" authority, handle promotions and provide workplace supervision as required.
PEOs are responsible for maintaining compliance with all regulations regarding the reporting and payment of federal, state and local taxes on wages paid to the workers. The PEO is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as the "employer of record" for liability for federal income and unemployment taxes and is responsible for these payments. The PEO is also responsible for compliance with the broad range of employment laws and regulations including: COBRA, Title VII, ADA, FMLA, HIPPA, Equal Pay Act, and Age Discrimination in Employment Act.
Workers want the quality health benefits and the opportunities for retirement savings that a PEO can offer. Through a Professional Employer Organization, Fortune 500 quality benefits can now be available to small and medium size businesses.
We offer the ability to "unbundle" services and benefits for clients that already have these capabilities.
For any company with 50 employees or less, we need all required documentation and reports 10 business days before your first anticipated pay date.
If your company has more than 50 employees, we will need all required documentation and reports 20 business days before your first anticipated pay date.
Often, in the exchange of information, we need to clarify the information presented to us. Because this process is driven by a set of hard deadlines, we ask that you be available either by phone or email to answer questions or provide more details. However, we understand that you are hard at work running your business, so we welcome a secondary contact that can help us keep the project moving.
Our goal, as a company, is to provide you with peace of mind for all your payroll needs. When you provide your completed client package, you are assigned to a designated Implementation Specialist. Your Business Development Representative and your Implementation Specialist work together to cater to your company’s needs and they make sure no details go unnoticed.
The implementation team likes to hold onto your payroll for at least 2 pay cycles. This ensures a smooth transition when we introduce you to your dedicated payroll specialist. Once your Implementation Specialist has closed your first payroll, we will walk you through your reports package and answer any questions you may have.
48 hours prior to pay date. For instance, if your pay date is on a Friday then we require all funding to be in place no later than Wednesday.
72 hours prior to pay date. For instance, if your pay date is on a Friday then we require all payroll hours to be submitted no later than Tuesday.

Please, notify your payroll specialist immediately. We cannot pay employees in the new state until you provide us with the tax ID’s.
