The Cooperative provides co-employment, payroll and benefits administration, and human resources services, which may change from time to time, to Employee Members (“Services”), as defined in the Bylaws. The Cooperative provides the Services pursuant to the Cooperative’s Terms, as may be amended from time to time. The Cooperative will become the Member’s “employer of record” and will assume certain compliance duties for Member’s employees, such as payroll and payroll tax compliance, benefits administration, workers’ compensation, processing unemployment claims, and other HR-related administrative tasks as available. Neither the execution of this Agreement, nor the participation by the Member in the activities of or opportunities offered by the Cooperative shall be deemed to create an employee-employer relationship between the Member and the Cooperative. Members are not employees of the Cooperative and are not entitled to protections or benefits available to employees under federal or state law, including but not limited to the Fair Labor Standards Act, the National Labor Relations Act, or state unemployment, workers compensation, wage and hour, or benefits laws. The Member’s execution of this Agreement constitutes acknowledgment and acceptance of this disclosure.
