Mitigate Your Clients’ Risk by Partnering with a PEO

How a PEO can help brokers and their clients with compliance services and expertise

If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that we’ve learned how complex and challenging it is for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) to navigate the compliance landscape on every level – local, state, and federal. A lot of the time, clients’ angst and confusion fall on their brokers to navigate. It’s difficult for health insurance or benefit brokers to continuously stay on top of the always-changing landscape of labor laws. That’s why a partnership with a PEO (Professional Employer Organization) is beneficial.

When brokers or general agents decide to partner with a PEO, they provide their clients with HR support and management to protect themselves from costly fines and penalties. A PEO will provide employee risk management services such as required workplace compliance posters and informative updates regarding legislative rules and regulations across all labor laws.

A PEO can safeguard your clients with employer insurance & employee risk management

Not only does a PEO offer the compliance and risk mitigation guidance you and your clients need, but it offers services to help reduce the chance or possibility of litigation. Working with a PEO like Prestige can offer employers an added layer of protection for themselves, their managers, and their business. A great example is the Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI). As this article from the  Insurance Information Institute states, “ ELPI covers businesses against claims by workers that their legal rights as employees of the company have been violated.” The value in ensuring your clients are protected against potential lawsuits or claims of sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful terminations, and the like, provides a sense of security that can’t be found outside of partnering with PEO.
