Employer Agent Services
This Service model empowers people with long term care needs to stay in their own home, and to choose and employ caregivers of their choice, within their individualized budget. The member becomes the employer of record with decision-making authority over hiring, firing, training and scheduling caregivers. The member/employer receives the care they need, when they need it, from people they know and trust. The member/employer designates Fiscal Assistance (FA) as the employer agent.
As the Employer Agent, Fiscal Assistance Inc. (FA) is appointed to comply with many of the administrative employer obligations so the member/employer has peace of mind that an expert is handling those duties on their behalf.
As the Self-Directed Employer Agent, Fiscal Assistance, Inc. will:
Assist with completing initial employee paperwork
Complete background checks on all potential employees
Provide worker’s compensation insurance administration
Process timesheets and payroll for all employees
Offer a pay card to employees for direct deposit (when needed)
File federal and state related taxes
Issue Year end W-2’s to each employee
