Professional employer organizations (PEOs) provide cost-effective human resource management services to small and mid-sized businesses. These services typically include traditional human resource duties, employee benefits, payroll and workers' compensation. By entering into a PEO arrangement, companies can out-source their HR related duties, allowing them to focus on their core competencies.

No. A PEO client retains ownership of the company and control over operations. As co-employers, the PEO and client will contractually share or allocate employer responsibilities and liabilities.
On the other hand, a leasing or staffing service supplies new workers on a temporary or project-specific basis. These leased employees return to the staffing service for reassignment after completion of their work with the client company.
A PEO arrangement involves all or a significant number of the client's existing worksite employees in a long-term, non-project related, employment relationship.
Like a leasing situation, a temporary staffing service recruits employees and assigns them to clients to support or supplement the client's workforce in special work situations, such as employee absences, temporary skill shortages or seasonal workloads. These workers are traditionally only a small portion of the client's workforce. A PEO contractually assumes and manages employer responsibilities for all or a majority of a client's workforce.
PEOs assume responsibility and liability for payment of wages and compliance with the rules and regulations governing the reporting and payment of federal and state taxes on wages paid to its employees.
As the employer for employment tax and employee benefits, PEOs assume responsibility and liability for payment of state unemployment taxes, and most states recognize the PEO as the responsible entity. In those states that require the PEO to report unemployment tax liability under its clients' account numbers, the PEO can still manage this responsibility.
Many states recognize the PEO as the employer of worksite employees for purposes of providing workers' compensation coverage.
It depends on various factors such as client's needs, type of business, and the number of employees. Back Office Remedies can fully customize your PEO HR outsourcing plan based on a consultation. Contact us for a non-obligation consultation and free quote.
