Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to some of our most frequently asked questions:

What is a PEO (Professional Employer Organization)?

A PEO (Professional Employer Organization) is a company that offers co-employment with your company. They handle the administrative aspects of the employee and you handle the management and day-to-day of the workers. The PEO specializes in payroll, workers compensation, health benefits and human resources. Some PEOs have over 500,000 worksite employees. They have substantial purchasing power due to these numbers and they put those numbers to work for you. For more details, please visit our ‘What is a PEO?’ page.

Am I obligated to accept an Offer?

No, there is no obligation to move forward with a PEO if you are not happy with the quote. The quote is free for you. We want you to feel comfortable to move forward with us as our client. Moving to a PEO is a big decision and you should be 100% happy with that decision.

How do I end my relationship with a PEO?

Each PEO has a different process to terminate agreements. Most require written notice be submitted to the PEO within 30-60 days before the termination takes effect.

I’ve accepted the Quote/Offer from the PEO. What is the Next Step?

After you enter into an agreement with a PEO, the next step is to begin the enrollment process. EasyPEO can help you with that as well. 

What is a PEO Set-Up- Fee?

A PEO set up fee is a fee charged to help with the set up costs associated with bringing a company onto their platform. These fees can sometimes be negotiated or waived. However they are necessary for the PEO to cover the cost of their resources when enrolling a new company.

What does the Admin Fee Cover?

The Admin Fee (Administrative Fee) is a monthly fee that is charged to cover the Payroll and HR costs for the PEO. The Fee is charged per employee and is another fee that sometimes could be negotiated with a PEO.

Co-employment is the contractual allocation and sharing of employer responsibilities between a PEO and its client. To learn more click here and review our PEO Basics page.

Do my employees have the option to pick from a list of different Health Insurance plan options?
