What Is an Ohio Professional Employer Organization?
According to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC), professional employer organizations (PEOs) handle many services for business clients. For example, these organizations step in to take care of employee benefits, workers’ comp issues, and payroll.
These businesses work with your company to provide access to better benefits plans for your employees. They can also offer different human resources (HR) services, often allowing you to select the services you need.
Is Ohio a PEO Reporting State?
Yes, PEOs operating in Ohio must report to the Ohio Department of Taxation. However, the reporting process falls on the PEO, not your company, allowing you to avoid time-intensive reporting procedures.
The reporting regulations in Ohio can increase your confidence about working with a PEO to enhance employee benefits. Our company adheres to all local, state, and federal laws regarding the operations of PEOs.
Why Hire a PEO Company in Ohio?
An Ohio PEO company can provide you with customized support for your company. These organizations can take over all your HR needs or provide specific services. Additionally, PEOs provide:
Strong Benefits Packages
Many small- and medium-sized businesses in Ohio struggle to compete with larger companies when it comes to offering competitive benefits. PEOs step in to even the playing field by providing access to:
- Retirement benefits
- Medical, vision, and dental insurance
- Reimbursement for tuition
Your company may even access an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about administering employee benefits. Instead, the PEO takes care of this time-consuming and frustrating task for you.
Assistance with Compliance
We understand that many companies worry about complying with all regulations for employee payroll, including issues with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). You have to meet certain deadlines and offer specific benefits to avoid penalties and fines.
When you work with an Ohio PEO company, the firm takes care of these compliance issues, allowing you to focus on other aspects of growing your business.
Payroll can take a significant amount of time to properly complete. You can quickly become bogged down in reporting, filing tax forms, and necessary bookkeeping. You can take this weight off your shoulders by hiring a PEO firm in Ohio.
Depending on your business goals, we can:
- Provide direct-deposit services
- Fill out your tax forms
- Give employees easy access to their pay stubs
- Offer you instant payroll reports
We also maintain open lines of communication so you can ask us any questions you have about payroll.
Help with Claims Resolution
Issues can arise with your employees at any time in Ohio. Our PEO team can step in to help with the resolution of:
- Unemployment claims
- Workers’ comp claims
- Wrongful termination assertions
- Discrimination allegations
Your Ohio PEO company provides you with an extra layer of liability protection.
What HR Services Do Ohio PEO Organizations Offer?
Many PEO organizations in Ohio provide a range of HR services, allowing you to avoid the costs of maintaining an in-house HR department. By working with a PEO company, you work with experienced HR professionals who can:
- Recruit employees to fill openings at your business
- Hire employees and provide training materials
- Terminate any employees who don’t meet your needs
Our team can take over all HR responsibilities for your company in Ohio. You can select only a few services if you want to maintain a small in-house HR department. You have control of the future of your business with an Ohio PEO company.
What Is the Difference Between a PEO and a Payroll Company in Ohio?
Payroll companies in Ohio can take care of payroll services for your business. However, they do not provide the rest of the services offered by a PEO. For example, they generally do not take care of hiring employees or assisting with claims resolution.
Additionally, payroll companies cannot help you offer your employees better benefits. Keep these differences in mind as you consider your options in Ohio.
How Do PEOs Work With Your Company in Ohio?
You set up a co-employment partnership when you hire an Ohio PEO company to assist your business. PEO co-employment means that the PEO firm acts as the employer for your employees in many situations.
Many business owners worry about losing control of their business when working with a PEO. However, the PEO cannot control your company when you agree to co-employment. Instead, the relationship has clearly defined roles.
The PEO takes care of specific duties. You delegate responsibilities to the PEO to carry out. Meanwhile, you maintain complete control of your business and employees, making all final decisions about your company.
