Industry InformationProfessional Employer Organizations (PEO)

There are three common policy models for PEO/Employee Leasing Arrangements:

  • Multiple Coordinated Policies—Separate policies are issued to the PEO and each of its client companies.
  • Multiple PEO Policies—Multiple and separate PEO policies issued to cover the leased employees of each client company.
  • Master Policy—Single PEO policy covering leased employees and nonleased employees for multiple client companies.

Below are the electronic data reporting guidelines for policy and unit statistical data when reporting PEO/Employee Leasing policies. The guidelines are separated by the policy model and the type of coverage. Please refer to the Basic Manual or the Experience Rating Plan Manual and any applicable state laws or regulations that determine the type of coverage and how PEO/Employee Leasing policies should be issued.

These reporting guidelines provide key data elements needed to identify PEO/Employee Leasing policies for the purpose of Proof of Coverage and Experience Rating. They do not include all data elements required in accordance with the WCPOLS and WCSTAT sections of the WCIO Workers Compensation Data Specifications Manual. Please refer to the WCIO Manual for those additional data elements and the fields that are required or optional.

For hard copy reporting requirements, please refer to the Policy and POC Reporting Guidebook.
