A company that hires employees pays all the taxes and workers compensation insurance but uses the employees to complete work for other companies. I keep seeing PEO used as a term for companies that send workers to complete work for other businesses but cover all the tax reporting and workers compensation. I just want to know if PEO's are legal ways of opperating a business that provides employees and all their benefits to other businesses.
I really need to figure out how to legally use one business to employee workers for serveral small one person businesses. I need to provide all recordkeeping, answering phones, banking, errand running and some general labor. I need one company responsible for all employment tax reporting. All employees would be completing work at one time or another during the work week for several different businesses.
Im looking for a legal way of doing what i must do out of necessity.
I want to start a new business that provides services for small businesses that can not afford to hire their own employees. I help 5 small businesses that are owner operated, I do their recordkeeping, check emails, banking and other small jobs. They are in need of part time help and between the 5 companies I could hire 3 people full time to do the work. Can I hire people under my business EIN pay taxes and provide workers compensation and benefits. But have the employees work at the business locations when needed.In california can a business provide workers for other business without a labor contractor license?
