Under co-employment, you call the shots and your PEO makes it happen. Both parties have a clearly defined role.
You are the primary employer and you have authority over the PEO. You keep full control over your employees’ day to day work and job descriptions, as well as management and organizational structure.
Your PEO will take on specific employer obligations, which you can choose. You give the PEO the power to handle crucial administrative tasks like payroll, tax withholding, and providing benefits to your workers. Your PEO can also act as your agent in employee disputes, unemployment claims, workers comp claims and more.
