“Employment Law Today” – Weekly Talk Radio Show: PEOs and Pandemics: What are the benefits to business owners?


A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is a firm that allows small and medium-sized companies to outsource most of their HR management responsibilities. PEOs deliver cost-effective, outsourced services for HR, payroll, benefits, and risk management. This allows owners and managers to focus on growing their business, not managing HR.

On this episode, my guest, Steven Frey, National Sales Manager at The Extensis Group, will share about the ways that PEO’s can benefit small and mid-sized businesses, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Business owners, tune in for this engaging and beneficial discussion!

About Employment Law Today

Helping Business With Employment Law Issues.

For many business owners, it can be overwhelming to keep up and comply with the federal and state labor and employment laws that govern how they run their business.  With the COVID-19 pandemic, there are new laws and regulations regarding hiring, firing, and workplace practices and protocols — all of which can increase business owners’ anxieties about regaining traction or thriving again.  On my weekly show, we will be discussing the most common employment law related questions and challenges that business owners have been facing in these uncertain times.

The show will have three main goals: (1) to inform businesses about employment law updates, (2) to inspire businesses by giving them the tools to move forward, and (3) to demonstrate how some business owners have overcome their employment law problems, walked through the challenges imposed by this pandemic, and have taken steps to regain traction during the reopening phases of this pandemic.

Our guests will include professionals who advise businesses from an H.R., legal, and financial perspective, along with thriving business owners who will share their experiences and insights into running a successful company while complying with labor and employment law mandates during COVID-19.
