Has anyone switched from employing people directly to employing people through an agency? I've had a few employees for a few years and I'm familiar with the various requirements, but I wonder if it would be smart to switch to a different employment model where employees are employed by an agency instead.
Has anyone made a switch like this? Using an agency sounds like an especially good fit if you're just starting out and you don't want to figure out all of the employment stuff, but I'm not sure it makes as much sense to switch over if you're already comfortable with everything since it is more expensive to use an agency.

What "employment stuff" are you trying to figure out? A cheap solution is quickbooks online payroll. It takes care of everything, all you do is setup the employee and enter hours. They submit all tax forms and payments for you. Its cheap too, like $59 month and $3 per employee.

What I'm saying is I've already figured out most employment stuff since I've been an employer for several years. I'm trying to figure out if it makes sense to switch to an agency employment model at this point.
