The limited pros and myriad of cons of Professional Employer Organizations
Professional employer organizations (PEOs) require a “joint-employment relationship” with their clients. Under this arrangement, the PEO hires the employees from their clients and leases them back to their original employer. This allows the PEO to “share and manage employee-related responsibilities and liabilities,” including outsourcing limited human resource functions like payroll administration, workers’ compensation, employee benefits, and payroll taxes.
PEOs can offer a few advantages for certain types of employers, particularly those with limited resources seeking primarily payroll and HR administrative help. But that’s not the whole story. We’ve highlighted some critical points to consider about the way PEOs operate.
