Employer of Record Services

ICON Information Consultants provides Employer of Record (EOR) services. We essentially pay our client’s employees and serve as the Employer of Record for tax purposes. The client company is responsible for directing the work of the employees and the employees are considered as workers for the client company. However, ICON Consultants is the primary employer for payroll, benefits, taxes, and other human resources and compliance functions. 

Have A Quick Question?


By using ICON, you will stay in compliance with the detailed rules, laws, and regulations, including state and local rules, which you may not desire or have the expertise or personnel to support. Benefits for using ICON Consultants as your EOR include:

  • HR Compliance. Companies that do not have specific expertise in human resource, tax, and data compliance can run into problems when they attempt to handle payroll processing on their own. This is particularly true as more and more state and local rules become common. ICON Consultants’ EOR services allow our customers to avoid this significant risk, such as financial penalties or other business sanctions that comes with being non-compliant.
  • Time savings. Payroll takes time to execute accurately. If payroll follows a unique schedule or is occurring every week, it can occupy the bulk of a company’s human resources’ time. Using ICON’s EOR services will save a company from the burden of supporting payroll on their own.
  • Risk avoidance. Classifying workers for worker’s compensation and making sure benefit plans are correct comes with business risk. With ICON as your EOR, we indemnify you for any problems over misclassification of workers and are responsible for the associated risk.

Agent of Record Services 

In a similar manner, ICON Information Consultants provides Agent of Record (AOR) services. We essentially engage independent contractors (IC) and serve as the Agent of Record on behalf of our clients. ICON Consultants acts as the intermediary between our client and the individual worker, by providing payment, handling invoices, tax documents, and other subcontractor, human resources, and compliance functions.

For large scale programs with many ICs, the administrative paperwork for back-office operations can be daunting. As your Agent of Record, ICON administers all the back-office functions related to independent contractors, taking away the requirement of setting up, reviewing and paying a new vendor. Our clients maintain a single vendor relationship with ICON. We provide analytics and reporting, including monthly reports, consolidated billing, and historical information.
