No. The PEO is responsible for processing your employees' payroll and paying payroll taxes, maintaining workers' compensation coverage, providing employee benefits and career development programs, providing human resources guidance, and providing worksite safety guidance. You continue to operate your business as you did prior to the PEO relationship. You remain an employer and do not lose any of your management or supervisory rights. In fact, because PEOs help you manage HR and minimize risk, you actually have greater control of your business, because you can focus on your priorities - and not HR.
