What Is A PEO?

A professional employer organization (PEO) provides a service where an employer can outsource employee management tasks, such as employee benefits, payroll, workers' compensation, risk/safety management, training and development, thus becoming an employer of record for tax purposes and insurance purposes. 
How does a PEO arrangement work?
In the relationship among a PEO, a worksite employee, and a client company, there exists a co-employment relationship in which both the PEO and client company have a relationship with the worker. The PEO and client company contractually allocate and share traditional employer responsibilities and liabilities. The PEO assumes responsibility for the “business of employment” including risk management, human resources, employment law compliance, payroll, and employee taxes. The PEO also provides an employee benefits package to the worksite employee. The client company directs and controls worksite employees.
In a PEO arrangement, does the business owner lose control  of the business?
No! The client retains ownership of the company and manages the day-to-day activities.
What is the difference between temporary staffing services and a PEO arrangement?
A temporary staffing service provides workers to its business clients to meet temporary or longer-term staffing needs. A PEO provides employment services to help its business clients with its existing workers and future hires.
Why would a worker want a PEO as an employer?
Many PEOs provide exceptional employee benefits including health benefits, retirement savings plans, and workplace risk management. Job security is improved as the PEO’s economies of scale permit a business to lower employment costs. Job satisfaction and productivity increase when workers are provided quality human resource services.
Why would a business use a PEO?
All business owners want to focus their time and energy on the “business of their business” and not on the “business of employment.” Most business owners don’t have the necessary human resources training, payroll and accounting skills, knowledge of regulatory compliance, or background in risk management, insurance and employee benefit programs to meet all the demands of being a good employer. Even for the business that has a human resources department, the PEO provides valuable and complementary expertise and services.

Additionally, PEOs provide worksite employees with coverage under the entire spectrum of employment laws and regulations, including federal, state, and local discrimination laws, Title VII of the 1964 Rights Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, ADA, HIPPA,
Equal Pay Act, and COBRA. In some cases, these laws would not apply to workers at small businesses with the PEO relationship, since many statutes have exemptions based upon the number of workers in a work force. Once included in the PEO’s workforce
the workers are protected by these laws.
What types of businesses would use a PEO?
Clients range from accounting firms and high-tech companies to trucking companies, manufactures and government agencies.
