Special PEO Legal and Regulatory Issue

If there ever were an industry that needs to stay on the straight and narrow, the PEO business is it. Even more challenging, PEOs need to keep their clients there as well. In a sense, that is the PEO’s business. Laws and regulations affect almost everything the PEO does: HR, benefits, workers’ comp, payroll, and taxes.
