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.
