The Pro HR+ Team

What is a PEO?
A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is defined as an organization that provides an integrated and cost effective approach to the management and administration of the human resources and employer risk of its clients, by contractually assuming substantial employer rights, responsibilities, and risk and, through the establishment and maintenance of a “joint” employer relationship.

Businesses today need help managing increasingly complex employee related matters such as personnel management, health benefits, workers' compensation claims, payroll, payroll tax compliance, and unemployment insurance claims. Businesses contract with a PEO to assume these responsibilities, which then allows the client to concentrate on the revenue-producing side of its operations.

When are employees eligible for health insurance and do I have to contribute on their behalf?

What do I do with the employee’s paperwork?

Once the employee completes the paperwork, you, the client, will verify that all items included and that the employee has signed all the new forms that require a signature. Once this is done, you simply return all completed information to Pro HR+,
