Question for some of you with larger companies having several employees: Is it a good idea to use an employee leasing company? It seems like a no brainer. Let me explain; A local employee leasing / temporary company approached me recently and asked if they could run some numbers for me and give me a proposal as to what it would cost to have me use them for employees. They came up with a proposal for me that's very attractive. I added up what it costs me for just payroll, monthly tax deposits, worker's comp., and the cost that I pay my current payroll processing company. And this price is about the same as what I'd pay if I leased my employees from this new company. So I'd pay the same as I do now. Only now I'd never have to worry about worker's comp. rates going up. Never have to worry about worker's comp. claims. Never have to worry about unemployment claims. Never have to worry about making monthly deposits, paying worker's comp. premiums, etc. And one of the biggest benefits is that I am no longer liable. They are THIS companies employees now, not mine. So it relieves me from all liabilities that could happen from employees (lawsuits, etc.). Further, they'd throw in Medical Insurance and an 401K plan (neither of which I don't offer now). I'd still be able to hire and fire people at will if I wanted. Or I could let them handle that. It's all up to me. To make things even better, they'd give me a line of credit and I wouldn't have to pay them until 7 days after Payday. The owner of the company said that could even be extended once in a while if I just called and let them know. I can't see any down side to doing this. Comments???
