agree  Charlie Bavington (X): FFR, I'd go with umbrella. "Wage Mgt Co." doesn't really mean much - and it could be confused with payroll outsourcing. Just for your own info, in case it comes up again !

agree  Bourth (X): Wage management. I certainly know no better. Prob. needs a definition though, since - judging by previous reactions here - this concept is not known in the US/UK.
3 hrs

disagree  Jane Lamb-Ruiz (X): the NY business community dealing with France uses bearer company; this answer is for portage salariale..not just portage
3 hrs

disagree  French2English: I agree with Jane L-R on this one... I have it referred to repeatedly in a document about banking and it definitely can mean simply 'bearer company', rather than always specifically referring to salaries etc.
