The threat of employee-related litigation | PEO Blog

Wednesday October 19, 2011

by Matt Thomas

Employee-related litigation is a constant worry for any employer.

U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charges reached an all-time high in 2010; wage and hour complaints constantly threaten a company’s bottom line.

Responding to an EEOC charge – many of which are frivolous – can cost a small company thousands of dollars – and that’s before it even reaches the formal stage. Legal fees can skyrocket when defending against a wage and hour complaint in court.

Staying up to date on labor laws is critical to the success of small- and medium-sized businesses, many of which lack the resources to do so on their own. That’s where a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) comes in: Part of a PEO’s responsibility is to stay educated on workplace laws and regulations and develop and maintain legally-approved workplace policies, both of which provide an employer peace of mind when it comes to employee-related litigation.

What is a Minority Certified PEO? | PEO Blog

Wednesday October 12, 2011

I’ve been following a LinkedIn discussion regarding Professional Employer Organization – PEO services provided by a Minority Certified PEO.

It’s been interesting following the discussion; surprisingly a number of people wondered what constituted a Minority Certified Company in general so I thought it would be helpful to explain it.

Generally when a prospect who is searching for Human Resource Outsourcing, Professional Employer Organization Services, Payroll, Temporary, Temp to Hire, or Contract Labor Services is asking about a Minority Certified they are referring to a provider that is part of the NMSDC – National Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. or one of their locations listed on their website at  The locations are basically state or regional councils that follow the guidelines of the NMSDC.
