LOL…. I could go on guessing…
What is it?
A professional employer organization (PEO) is a firm that provides a service under which an employer can outsource employee management tasks, such as employee benefits, payroll and workers’ compensation, recruiting, risk/safety management, and training and development. The PEO does this by hiring a client company’s employees, thus becoming their employer of record for tax purposes and insurance purposes. This practice is known as joint employment or co-employment.
Why use it?
Through employee leasing, Key HR assumes your employee related responsibilities and risks for workers’ compensation, unemployment, payroll and payroll taxes under what is called a co-employment agreement. Under this agreement, we assist with all HR needs and company benefits. We maintain all personnel files, employee records and documentation and provide you with direct access to support staff.
By outsourcing these responsibilities, you can allocate more time and resources to revenue producing activities such as product development, sales, marketing and customer service.

Frequently Asked Questions
What type of companies use a PEO?
Companies in almost every industry can use the services provided by a PEO. Any company interested in trying to improve its performance in a increasingly competitive marketplace should consider this type of relationship.
Who is responsible for my employment taxes?
While the client is responsible for providing the funds to cover payroll and payroll taxes, a PEO administers payment of wages to employees and payment of taxes to the appropriate agencies.
Who is responsible for compliance with employment laws and regulations?
One of the responsibilities of a PEO is to provide clients with guidance and education regarding employment laws and regulations. Ultimately, the responsibility for complying with most of these laws lies with the client.

No. The management relationship that you have with your employees will continue, but the partnership enables you to offer improved HR-related products and services.
