Professional employer organizations (PEOs) serve a vital service to a diverse group of businesses by handling complex and administratively burdensome responsibilities relating to workforces of many sizes. A PEO provides outsourced human resource solutions to a wide variety of employment matters such as payroll, benefits, employment tax administration, and regulatory compliance. Our attorneys have represented professional employer organizations located throughout the United States for over 25 years. We understand that PEOs play a critical role in today’s economy and face a constant stream of changes to employment laws and regulatory environments that govern themselves and their clients.
By maintaining active membership in industry groups such as the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO), our attorneys are able to assist your staffing company with the latest legal trends and developments affecting PEOs. Because a PEO’s relationship with their client involves a complex sharing of certain employer responsibilities, it is critical that the allocation of such responsibilities are properly delineated in contracts prepared by legal counsel having experience in the industry. Whether we are assisting a start-up, or advising a staffing company that is long-established, our tax and business law practices enables us to provide innovative and cost-effective solutions to a PEO’s diverse legal needs.
If we can be of assistance in any of the areas described above, please contact Rufus Wolff.
