What is a PEO?
Your business enters into a co-employer relationship with a PEO to outsource the employer responsibilities. In a co-employer relationship, the PEO assumes control of the employees for tax and liability purposes and the business and leadership team retain 100% control and direction of employees (including recruitment and termination).
A co-employer relationship is established when a company executive signs a Client Service Agreement (CSA) with a PEO. The CSA outlines the terms of the co-employer relationship as well as the shared and individual responsibilities of both parties.
