Definition of a Professional Employer Organization
A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is defined as an organization that provides an integrated and cost effective approach to the management and administration of the human resources and employer risk of its clients, by contractually assuming substantial employer responsibilities and risk, through the establishment and maintenance of a co-employer relationship with the client's employees.
More specifically, a PEO establishes a contractual relationship with its clients whereby the PEO:
- Pays wages and employment taxes of the employee out of
its own accounts;
- Reports, collects, and deposits employment taxes with
state and federal authorities;
- Establishes and maintains a co-employment relationship
with its employees which is
intended to be long term and not temporary;
- Assumes responsibility as an employer for specified
purposes of the workers assigned
to the client locations; and
- Shares the responsibility of co-employees wages and
safety with the client.
Businesses today need help managing increasingly complex employee related matters, such as: personnel management, health benefits, workers' compensation claims, payroll, payroll tax compliance, and unemployment insurance claims. Businesses contract with a PEO to assume these responsibilities, which then allows the client to concentrate on the revenue-producing side of its operations. A PEO provides integrated services which more cost effectively manage critical human resource responsibilities and employer risks for clients. PEOs deliver these services by establishing and maintaining an employer relationship with the workers assigned to its client and by contractually assuming substantial employer rights, responsibilities, and risk.
