How co-employment works
Co-employment is a legal arrangement by which you continue to employ your employees, but we become a co-employer with you so that we can take care of certain administrative functions.
Our customer service agreement delineates the responsibilities between your company and Justworks. By co-employing your employees, and through the sharing of employer responsibilities, Justworks is able to take on administrative tasks for you and consolidate certain tax and insurance functions. We'll help take care of certain employer responsibilities, such as securing workers' comp, administering payroll, and withholding, reporting, and remitting federal, state, and local payroll taxes, so that you can focus on building your business.
In addition, co-employment makes it possible for us to seamlessly offer access to high-quality medical, dental, and vision insurance, without the price tag.
