What is a PEO?
A PEO (professional employer organisation) is an organisation that enters into joint employment relationships with employers by leasing employees. This means a PEO can share and manage many employee-related responsibilities and liabilities, leaving the employer to focus on operations and the expansion itself.
Companies can outsource human resources functions to a PEO like benefits, compensation and payroll administration, insurance and employment taxes.
How does a professional employer organization work?
From a legal perspective, employers and PEOs engage in a process called joint employment, or co-employment. This means employees are technically employed by both the expanding organisation and the Global PEO.
However, the PEO can undertake all elements of payroll management and employment services, leaving the business wishing to expand internationally to focus on operational aspects, rather than potentially complicated local employment practices.
Why use a PEO?
Using a global PEO is the quickest way to hire and pay an employee internationally. It removes the headache of setting up an entity abroad and trying to remain compliant with local laws.
