Employer Responsibility and Liability in Employee Leasing

When trying to decide on employee leasing for your business, it's very important to be clear about who takes employer responsibility and liability. It's wrong to say that the employee leasing services company takes all the responsibility and liability. It's not right to leave to you, the business owner, most of the liability which is the reason why you avail of staff leasing service in the first place.

Employer responsibility and liability must be shared. This is in fact what Axis Group advocates as a Professional Employer Organization (PEO). Axis Group partners with their clients to allocate and share employer responsibility and liability. They are in the "business of employment". Risk management, workers' compensation, human resources, labor law compliance, payroll, benefits, and employee tax administration are just some the services that Axis Group provides. Making it the complete human resource and employee benefit package leaving you free to manage product development and production, marketing, sales and service.

So, when choosing the right Professional Employer Organization (PEO), bear in mind to balance the responsibility and liability between you and the PEO company. Each PEOs have their own specialties but most will work for your benefit. Their success depends on you success. They will try to work on you advantage so you can focus on making your business as success rather waste your time running it.
