Paychex HR PEO Client Referral Program Terms & Conditions

If you refer a client to Paychex HR PEO, as a thank-you we’ll pay you a referral incentive of $25 per employee, up to a maximum of $10,000 per client. To refer a client, use this form.

The referral incentive is subject to the following conditions

The referral incentive is subject to the following conditions:

Payment is based on number of full time and full-time equivalent employees (two part time employees equate to one full time employee) enrolled and active on the account’s payroll ninety (90) days after the service agreement effective date through Paychex HR PEO. We will only pay the incentive to you if: there are at least 10 such employees; you refer the account via the form above; you are the first person to refer the account to us (we will not pay more than one referral incentive per client) and you provide us the information we request in connection with the referral; the account becomes active on our Paychex HR PEO service within six months of the first date the referral was received; and only after the client has been effective on our PEO service and in good standing for 90 days.

We will pay you as an independent contractor, not an employee. You are solely responsible for any taxes incurred as a result of our paying the referral incentive. We may disclose to a referred client that we paid you a referral incentive and the amount that we paid.

By making a referral via the [link/form] above, by accepting a referral incentive, and as a condition of our paying a referral incentive, you agree to the conditions listed here and you certify that: you are over the age of 18 (if you are an individual); you are lawfully able to receive the referral incentive; you will not receive any consideration (such as a commission) in connection with Paychex HR PEO’s relationship with the referred client; you are not an officer, employee, director, shareholder, or fiduciary of the referred client; you are not employed by Paychex, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries if you are an individual; and if you are an organization less than 25% of your ultimate beneficial ownership or control is employed by Paychex, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries. We will only pay referral incentives to persons within the United States and will not pay referral incentives if prohibited by law. You cannot assign the ability to receive a referral incentive.

We retain the right in our sole discretion to at any time without notice or consideration establish, modify, discontinue, apply, and interpret the conditions applicable to referral incentives, including without limitation determining whether a referral incentive is payable, the amount of referral incentive payable, who if anyone is credited with a referral, and whether the conditions applicable to the referral incentive are met.
