Proper preparation can prevent problems. Having a professional partner can help solve problems.
Having a professional employer organization on your side can help prevent problems be the difference between making or breaking during an employee crisis. Things can go wrong. Things can go wrong with employees and administration, too. There are times having an experienced and professional group on the same team as the employer can help clean up the mess.
Some of the problems that can cripple a business that goes solo are:
No business owner is happy to receive letters from the IRS. Wouldn’t it be great if this could become Somebody Else’s Problem? Wouldn’t it be an advantage if all the employees were on someone else’s Federal ID number?
It happens. Employees can get hurt on the job. What are the procedures? How does an employer avoid legal issues? Workers’ Comp Insurance is expensive for a reason. Doctors, Lawyers and Hospitals love comp claims, since there are no co-pays, deductibles or limits. How can employer make this problem “go away”? How does an employer keep the workers’ comp insurance premiums from rising? How do they avoid costly, end of year audits?
Disputes between Employees.
What are employers allowed to do? How do you handle a fight? How do you terminate a bad employee without incurring risk? How do you avoid an unemployment claim? How can you minimize the damage?
Is everything being done right? In compliance? Are there any potential lawsuits sitting out there? How can employers protect themselves from employee lawsuits?
What can employer do to get rid of a bad employee without opening the gates for wrongful termination? What are the documentation procedures? Is there counseling required? Who knows the answers?
These are challenging questions. Is having a PEO an answer for all of them? Maybe. It depends a lot on the employer, the PEO and the relationship defined in the Client-Service agreement. Do you need an expert to help you select a PEO that matches your needs? That’s where PEO Pros comes in.
