MORE ABOUT EMPLOYER
What does employer mean?
An employer is a person, company, or organization that employs people—pays them for work.
Less commonly, employer can mean something that occupies someone or someone that uses something (the word employ can also mean to use), as in Be a good employer of your time.
Example: If the factory closes, thousands of people will lose their jobs—it’s the largest employer in the county.
Where does employer come from?
The first records of the word employer come from right around 1600. The base word, employ, ultimately derives from the Latin implicāre, meaning “to engage.” The word employee came later, with the suffix -ee indicating a person who is the object or beneficiary of employment.
While employees are often seen as the ones getting this benefit—and the benefits that sometimes come with it, such as health insurance—the employee-employer relationship is based on an exchange. The employer exchanges money for work done. This exchange is often formalized through some kind of contract or employment agreement, and both employee and employer are often used in the context of official situations like this. Typically, a person must have an employer to be considered an employee.
