What is co-employment?

As a business leader, you may cringe a little when you hear the term Staffing Company.   But it’s really not as intrusive as it may sound.

Through the staffing relationship, we take on many of your employee-related employer responsibilities, while you continue to manage and run your business. Here’s what that actually means for your business:

Your role

Your company remains the primary employer. You’ll still maintain control over managing your employees’ daily to-dos and core job functions as well as maintaining your organizational structure.

The Staffing Company’s role

As the staffing company we take on certain, specific employer obligations, as set forth in your service agreement. This allows the Staffing Company to handle functions such as payroll, benefits, tax remittance and related government filings. Because it acts as an employer for those purposes, the Staffing Company can assume a greater amount of responsibility than, for example, a payroll company.

Gain peace of mind knowing that you’re HR compliant and have the protection you need.

Achieving HR confidence is difficult in today’s world because of the risks associated with escalating HR rules, new regulations, and increasing complexity, as well as the changes due to the Affordable Care Act. Relying on Safety Harbor Staffing’s HR expertise will help you mitigate these risks, enabling you to concentrate on the activities that differentiate you and create value for your customers.

We share in the risk and you reap the rewards through happy employees and smooth operations.

At-the-ready compliance assistance

Most Staffing Companies employ specialists who are responsible for monitoring many employer-related state and federal laws. Armed with this knowledge, they can help you stay abreast of constantly shifting laws, regulations and reporting requirements that impact your ability to successfully run your business. These include things like properly following federal and state leave laws, assisting your company in its compliance with FLSA and employee handbook development.


  • Control your business

Staffing Companies provide access to seasoned HR professionals whose guidance and advice you can solicit when you need assistance. They help manage your company’s employee-related administration and risks, but you maintain control of business and operational decisions.

  • Replace your internal HR staff

Staffing Companies align with your company’s existing HR department or staff to provide complimentary expertise, such as support in administering workplace policies and making shifts in company culture. A good Staffing Company will employ seasoned HR staff who are certified HR professionals who have experience with various industries. And as a Safety Harbor Staffing client, their expertise is at your disposal. This can prove invaluable when you’re faced with complicated HR situations or workplace improvement initiatives, such as increasing employee engagement, addressing conflict effectively or developing compensation programs that connect to business goals.
