What is an Employer of Record?

An Employer of Record (EOR) assumes the primary legal obligations of a worker by assuming primary employer responsibilities such as onboarding, payroll processing, tax filings, ACA benefits compliance, HR queries, and more. The primary role of an EOR is to handle all employment-related tasks and liabilities, making it significantly easier for companies to hire globally. By acting as the company's legal representative, an EOR simplifies HR and payroll functions, ultimately saving businesses valuable time and resources. This arrangement proves particularly beneficial for companies with employees spread across multiple states or countries.

Are All Employer of Records the Same?

No – the services offered by Employer of Records vary widely across different regions and countries. In the United States and Canada, staffing firms face numerous challenges when placing workers, including administrative tasks, taxes, benefits, workers' compensation insurance, and payroll processing.

Agile Partnering is a niche EOR provider solely dedicated to serving the recruitment industry, by serving as the sole Employer of Record for contract workers. As noted above, this includes taking on the responsibility of managing employment contracts, worker classification, compliance with employment laws, providing timesheet, HR software solutions, and more.

Employer of Record FAQs

Here are the most frequently asked questions about our Employer of Record services:

An EOR is a business that legally employs an individual on behalf of another company. This can be within the same country or internationally. The EOR takes on full responsibility for compliance, contracts, salaries, payroll, taxes, benefits, and more.

Agile Partnering acts as a third-party employer of contract workers, handling the administration, paperwork, and responsibilities related to payroll, including taxes. This includes providing benefits and carrying necessary insurances.

With an EOR, the provider becomes the sole legal employer of the individual, whereas a PEO operates with a co-employment arrangement with their clients. EORs, such as Agile Partnering, often include insurance as part of their service, while an additional charge is typically accrued when establishing insurance with a PEO. You can learn more about the differences here.

Unlike a PEO that is based on a co-employment model, Agile Partnering operates as an EOR which means they take on full responsibility as the sole-employer of the contract worker. PEO clients fund the fully loaded payroll burden upfront, whereas Agile Partnering offers payroll funding options. Find out more about payroll funding options here

An EOR allows recruiters to focus on their core business, allowing for faster business growth. By handling non-core activities and administrative tasks like payroll processing, timesheet approval, invoice management, etc. EORs provide a cost-effective way to remove the administrative burden on the staffing organisation.

As the EOR takes on sole responsibility for hiring the employee, staffing firms are able to make placements in other countries without having to establishing a physical presence. Agile Partnering provides expert support when making placements within the US and Canada saving costs, time, and effort. Find out more here

Unlike PEOs, which usually require a minimum of five to ten workers, EORs work with no restrictions and can cater to organisations with only one employee.

Yes, Agile Partnering ensures compliance with federal laws regarding independent contractors and W-2 employees and eliminates the risk of misclassification.

Yes, Agile Partnering can enable clients to place workers in all 50 states.

Yes, Agile Partnering handles all employee onboarding processes, including background checks, drug screens, e-verification, and employment contracts.

Agile offers a unique embedded funding model for the staffing industry, which allows staffing firms to leverage their end clients credit to grow their own business.  The way it works is simple - the staffing firm assigns the funds owed for placements to Agile, and Agile will fund the entire payroll and provide gross margin only payments to its clients.  It's similar to factoring, but it's different in that it is provided by the EOR. This option is ideal for companies that don’t want to use their own cash to float payroll.
