Massachusetts PEO Companies

What Does a Massachusetts PEO Do?

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO), also known as an employee leasing company - allows businesses to outsource a number of employment administrative tasks, deliver cost-effective payroll services and access great rates on Massachusetts’ workers' comp and health insurance.

There are many benefits for employers looking to partner with a PEO. One of the biggest advantages is the time savings that business owners are able to achieve by outsourcing the headaches of payroll and HR management. When the PEO manages these tasks, employers are able to focus on building profits and expanding business opportunities.

What are the Advantages of Using a PEO Provider?

Business owners want to focus their time and energy on growth and revenue not on the business of employment. So each year, more and more Massachusetts companies are connecting with the services of a Professional Employer Organization (PEO). PEO advantages include:

How Does a PEO Arrangement Work?

Known as a "co-employment" relationship, this unique situation allows businesses to outsource many employment liabilities, while still maintaining the day-to-day control of their employees. The business owner continues to hire, train and schedule their employees.

The PEO is responsible for all of the HR-related tasks, including employee payroll, safety, benefit administration and unemployment claims to name a few.

Working with a Massachusetts PEO also allows companies to use the PEO’s lower EM (experience modifier). This can be particularly beneficial to companies with prior claims issues and high experience modifiers.

Advantages of Using a Massachusetts PEO for Workers' Compensation

For a number of industries, workers' compensation insurance is many times the most expensive part of running a business. That's why many Massachusetts employers are turning to a PEO program to lower premiums and costs. With a PEO's help in safety and risk management services which drive down their experience modification rate, client employers can often save up to 40% off traditional policy rates.

Payroll services also provide an audit each period to ensure accuracy. Every Massachusetts PEO has specific workers' compensation classifications they can/ cannot cover mandated by their Workers' Compensation insurance policy or other carrier arrangements. Additional Massachusetts PEO Workers' Compensation Benefits Include:
