HR Compliance in Missouri

Small business owners in Missouri and across the nation often find themselves grappling with the intricate web of federal, state and local labor laws, causing undue stress and sleepless nights. Without expertise in HR, understanding and adhering to these legal requirements can be daunting.

That's where a Missouri PEO, like Axcet, comes in.

We serve as a trusted partner, ensuring compliance with constantly evolving HR regulations. From managing EEO-1 reporting to overseeing FMLA administration, ADAA and Title VII compliance and handling state and federal postings, Axcet takes care of these essential tasks, allowing Missouri small businesses to focus on what they do best—running their operations smoothly and efficiently.

Unemployment Claims

Navigating the intricacies of unemployment claims can be daunting for small and mid-sized business owners in Missouri.

Many are unaware they have just 10 days to provide eligibility information to the state when a former employee files an initial unemployment insurance claim. Failure to meet this deadline can result in automatic approval of benefits, potentially leading to increased unemployment taxes.

By partnering with Axcet, a Missouri PEO specializing in the management of workers’ comp claims, businesses alleviate the burden of these complex claims. Our experienced team handles responses promptly and efficiently, safeguarding our clients from paying illegitimate claims and mitigating the risk of higher unemployment taxes in the long run.

Risk Management

Axcet’s certification as an OSHA VPP (Voluntary Protection Program) Star Worksite is unique among Missouri PEOs and recognizes our outstanding achievement in workplace safety.

You’ve Got Questions about Missouri PEOs? We’ve Got Answers.

A few frequently asked questions – and answers – for those interested in learning more about PEOs.

PEO stands for Professional Employer Organization.

A PEO provides employment management tasks including employee benefits, payroll administration, workers’ compensation, human resources, and risk and safety management, and human resources compliance guidance.

A PEO allows companies to outsource key human resource functions like payroll, benefits, training, and guidance to assist small and mid-sized companies with maintaining compliance with federal and state labor and employment laws.  Working with a PEO can help business owners and their management teams focus on the business.

Axcet HR is a Certified PEO through the IRS. Learn more about why that IRS certification is important.

A professional employer organization (PEO) is a firm that provides comprehensive HR solutions for businesses. PEOs, like Axcet HR Solutions, partner with small and mid-sized businesses to handle tasks such as payroll, employee benefits administration, HR compliance and risk management. 

By teaming up with a PEO, businesses can access a range of benefits, including cost-effective small business health insurance for Missouri-based companies. This partnership allows businesses to focus on their core operations while the PEO manages critical HR functions, ensuring compliance with state and federal regulations.

A Missouri business might use a PEO, like Axcet HR Solutions, for several reasons. 

  1. HR Compliance – PEOs specialize in HR compliance, helping businesses navigate the complex landscape of employment laws and regulations to avoid costly penalties. 
  2. Time Management – Partnering with a Missouri PEO allows businesses to save time by outsourcing time-consuming HR tasks, such as payroll processing and benefits administration, freeing up valuable resources to focus on core business functions.
  3. Quality Health Benefits – PEOs offer access to Fortune 500-level employee benefits, including tailored small business health insurance for Missouri companies, helping them to attract and retain top talent.
  4. Scalability – As a small business grows, its HR needs get more complex. It’s time for consistent and repeatable HR policies and procedures.

Business owners want to focus their time and energy on the "business of their business" and not on the "business of employment." As businesses grow, most owners do not have the necessary human resources training, payroll and accounting skills, knowledge of regulatory compliance, or backgrounds in risk management, insurance and employee benefit programs to meet the demands of being an employer. PEOs give small-group markets access to many benefits and employment amenities they would not have otherwise.

Partnering with a PEO brings significant economic advantages by leveraging economies of scale to reduce employment costs and enhance profitability. 

Businesses can minimize or eliminate their in-house HR department, cutting hiring costs and overhead. PEO providers offer expert compliance assistance, reducing liability risks, and provide access to advanced technology and services. 

By managing routine HR tasks, a PEO allows business owners to concentrate on their core activities, driving growth and improving the bottom line.

Here are 10 benefits of using a PEO:

  1. Businesses that use a PEO are 50% more likely to succeed.
  2. PEO clients grow 7 to 9%  faster than businesses not using a PEO.
  3. Those who use a PEO have 10 to 14%  lower employee turnover.
  4. Employees have access to more and better benefits including 401(k), health, dental and life insurance.
  5. You – and your employees - will receive HR and payroll support whenever you need it.
  6. An online portal for employees to access payroll and benefits information.
  7. Ensure compliance with all state and federal regulations related to employment law and payroll administration.
  8. Expert support to assist with any HR regulatory changes that impact your employees and your business.
  9. Get out of doing human resources administration and paperwork.
  10. Peace of mind – Companies that partner with a CPEO can rest easy, knowing the CPEO meets rigorous IRS requirements that illustrate organizational integrity, expertise and fiscal health

PEOs are designed specifically to help small- to mid-sized businesses. These businesses often lack the resources and expertise to handle various HR tasks efficiently. 

By partnering with a PEO, SMBs can access a range of HR services, including payroll processing, benefits administration, compliance management and risk mitigation. 

Of particular interest is the access to Fortune 500-level small business health insurance for Missouri companies – and at an affordable rate.

PEOs are generally the best fit for small- to mid-sized businesses with fewer than 250 employees.

When a company partners with a PEO, a “shared employment” relationship is created. “Shared employment” means both the company and the PEO have an employment relationship with the employee. 

In this relationship, the PEO typically assumes responsibility and liability for the employee administration functions of payroll, benefits, human resources and risk management. 

The company still maintains control over all other employment aspects, including hiring setting wages, supervision, etc.

While both are considered human resources outsourcers, they operate in different roles.
