PEO Services for the Cannabis Industry

At Paylient, we offer a comprehensive solution that consolidates all your HR and payroll relationships into one place, providing efficiency, consistency, and ease of management.

You’ll benefit from efficient payroll and tax filing, state-specific HR management, employer mandatory insurance and employer voluntary insurance. 

Why choose our PEO versus traditional HR outsourcing?

Through co-employment, our PEO establishes a legal obligation to your business, taking on specific employer liabilities that align with NAPEO’s definition of the contractual allocation and sharing of employer responsibilities between a PEO and client. In this framework, Paylient would become the Employer of Record, managing the administrative burdens and all of the back office components of having employees and running a business, while the business would maintain itself as the Employer of Management, being responsible for the hiring, firing, and day-to-day management and overseeing of the employees and the business operations. This model offers a unique level of partnership, commitment, accountability, and ‘skin in the game’, meaning each party takes on distinct employment obligations, handling certain responsibilities while also jointly addressing specific employer risks.

This arrangement differs significantly from traditional HR services by effectively splitting the employer responsibilities, which can mitigate risks and enhance operational efficiency for the client. Traditional HR often leaves all employer responsibilities and liabilities solely with the client, whereas our co-employment model allows for a shared approach, reducing the burden and providing expert management of complex HR functions. This strategic sharing of duties allows businesses to focus more on their operational and strategic goals without the overwhelming complexity of complete HR management.

Shared Liability

Understanding The Shared Liability Model

The shared liability model, a cornerstone of the Professional Employer Organization (PEO) partnership, involves a co-employment arrangement where both the PEO and the client company share certain legal responsibilities related to employment. In this model, the PEO becomes the employer of record for tax purposes and assumes many of the employer-related liabilities, particularly in areas such as payroll administration, tax compliance, workers’ compensation, and unemployment insurance claims. Simultaneously, the client company retains control over business operations, including managing the day to-day activities of their employees and making key business decisions. This shared approach effectively distributes risk, reduces the administrative burden on the client, and enhances compliance with employment laws, ultimately allowing businesses to focus more on their core operations and strategic goals.
