What is the difference between an EOR and an EOP?

EOR (Employer of Records) offers distinct advantages, particularly in terms of legal and compliance responsibilities. With EOR, companies can offload the burden of legal liabilities and tax obligations onto a dedicated entity, reducing risks and ensuring adherence to regulations. This allows businesses to focus more on their core operations while maintaining compliance with employment laws. In contrast, while PEOs (Professional Employer Organization) offer comprehensive HR services, EOR’s specialization in legal and tax compliance stands out as a key benefit for businesses navigating complex regulatory environments.
