State Government Affairs

NAPEO's state government affairs mission is to create and cultivate a legislative and regulatory climate in all 50 states that is hospitable to PEOs and positions the PEO industry for continued growth. At the state level, NAPEO pursues statutory recognition of the PEO as the employer of record for workers' compensation, unemployment insurance, and benefits sponsorship. 

NAPEO's 20 Leadership Councils provide valuable input on ​our state government affairs intiatives, coordinate grassroots efforts, conduct Leadership Council Forums to discuss current issues, and act as the voice of the NAPEO membership in a particular state or region.
