Risk Management Solutions for Your Business

Gain peace of mind

Count on our compliance experts for industry-specialized guidance on employment-related rules and regulations to help you mitigate risk.

Make informed decisions

Be confident that our expert guidance will help you stay on track whenever difficult or sensitive situations arise, so you can always make an informed decision.

Stay on top of regulatory shifts

Keeping up with ever-changing employment rules and regulations takes time away from growing your business. Rely on compliance experts to handle that for you.

Payroll compliance

Spend less time on payroll compliance and more time growing your business. With payroll, you need an HR ally who not only is an expert on the minutiae of reporting requirements and filings at the federal, state and local level, but also is equally adept at managing multiple unemployment insurance claims and inquiries.

What this means for you:

  • Create, file and send W-2s to employees, including electronic W-2s and TurboTax™ integration
  • Administer and manage unemployment benefits, including plans, payroll collection and claims handling
  • Collect and remit federal, state and local taxes for payroll administered through TriNet

Lean on our expertise

A consulting firm received a wrongful termination lawsuit from an employee who was let go due to poor performance. Having worked with TriNet in establishing best practices, the firm had a well-documented trail of the performance-related issues leading up to the termination.


TriNet's team helped manage the unfounded lawsuit through our EPLI coverage and helped achieve a favorable result without incurring excessive legal fees.
