No payroll headaches, no administration, no employer paperwork, no tax reporting. Outsource – it’s a simple solution.
J. Kent’s Payrolling Service allows companies to retain their proven staff, or to bring on a new individual identified by, or referred to, your organization. Virtually any position can be payrolled by J. Kent Staffing.
What’s the Difference Between Payrolling and Temporary Staffing?
The only difference is that YOU (not J. Kent Staffing) identified or recruited the individual, and then you referred them to us to complete the vetting process – to include background checks, testing, onboarding – and to make the hire. The hourly bill rate to your company is less for Payrolling than with Temporary Staffing because you – not us – did the work to recruit and identify the candidate. J. Kent Staffing is considered the Employer of Record in both situations.
Why Use Payrolling?
Your company has a hiring freeze, but you still have the workload
You don’t want to add to headcount, or onboard a new benefit-eligible employee, for a position that is not going to be a long-term addition to staff (i.e., medical leaves, special projects)
You want to enlist the help of a family member, and it is against company policy to hire family members
Reduce the risk of utilizing and potentially misclassifying independent contractors; there are heavy fines and tax implications to companies for misclassifying workers as independent contractors when they should be classified as W-2’d employees
How Does it Work?
You identify or recruit the person to be hired and refer them to J. Kent Staffing
You provide the title, work schedule, and complete job description to J. Kent (full job description is required to be able to determine the appropriate workers’ compensation classification)
You determine and recommend the employee’s pay rate per hour
Before starting work, the payrolled individual will be assigned to a J. Kent Staffing Manager and will be scheduled into our office to complete the interview, onboarding, and New Hire Orientation.
We pay our Employee weekly, and bill your company weekly, for as long as you need
J. Kent Staffing is the Employer, so we handle all of the payroll taxes and tax reporting, and provide workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance to our employee; we issue the year-end W-2
When the assignment is over, J. Kent handles the separation, including any unemployment claims
