According to a release by Cal-OSHA, HR Comp was “Piggybacking” another PEO Action Personnel Agency when one of their shared employees was killed in an industrial accident. Piggybacking is an illegal activity in most states and greatly frowned upon in the Professional Employer industry.
Whether or not HR Comp will be cited for this activity remains to be seen.
Piggybacking is when one PEO enters into an agreement with another PEO to c0-employee workers in order to obtain workers compensation insurance. Given that there has been questions on whether HR Comp even had legitimate coverage in the state of California, the investigation is likely to continue.
