Does using a labor leasing company or Pofessional employment Organisation still considered an creating employment under EB-5.
A labor leasing or PEO basically acts as HR department which provides small busniess with workers. They do the payroll processing, payroll tax filings, wokers compensation claims management etc.
They charge a fee , they take over the employees and lease them back to the company.
I still see this as creating jobs. Altought I dont pay payroll tax under my company, I am leasing work force and still paying payroll tax trough leasing company. But want to know if immigration see it the same way.
If you are in the regional center context, these can all be considered indirect employees anyway, but I would be wary of using this method for a direct EB-5 investment. If you have the proper tax forms for these employees you could be OK.
