PEO (Professional Employment Organization) service is a functional contractual arrangement between a PEO and its client, whereby they share the rights and responsibilities of a hired employee. While it is important to note that the employee works directly for the client company, not for the PEO, and all financial responsibilities belong to the client company.
The PEO acts as a co-employer, which means that they share the responsibility for the employees. They will provide many necessary HR services, but decisions regarding hiring, termination, and compensation are left to the client employer. Suppose the client employer’s employee is in Turkey. In that case, PEO will also assist with the country’s compliance, which is important when hiring in a country like Turkey, where the client is not aware of employment laws and regulations.
