Post-Election Possibilities: Changes to HR and Tax Compliance You May See

Many employers are still grappling with new compliance challenges enacted in recent years, and unresolved legislative priorities from past years may be brought to the forefront in the critical first year of the new administration. That begs the question – What should employers expect in this post-election environment? Which policy issues are likely to be considered and how might they affect employers? We reached out to ADP experts Ellen Feeney, Vice President and Counsel – Global Compliance, and Pete Isberg, Vice President, Government Relations, to ask them what they think employers can expect in the upcoming year. The Affordable Care Act was discussed at length in this past election cycle. What are some possible changes employers can expect? Ellen: While President-elect Trump campaigned on the promise that he’d repeal and replace the ACA, his stance has shifted somewhat post-election, and he seems open to the possibility of keeping some parts of the law. At this point, the ACA is tightly woven into our health care system as twenty million...

Are Your Employees In(Form)ed about Annual Reporting?

By Mary Schafer Help Quell Calls and Confusion with Effective Communications Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) with 50 or more full-time, including full-time equivalent employees, are subject to the employer shared responsibility provision and related IRS reporting requirements. This includes filing Forms 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS, and sending the Form 1095-C to their employees, to report information about the health insurance coverage offered under their employer-sponsored plans for the 2016 tax year annual reporting. So, as a large employer, you’ve likely made it through your first year of annual health care reporting and are starting the process all over again. Since this is only the second year your full-time employees will receive a Form 1095-C, a communications plan is key to your success. At a recent ADP webinar, when asked if they felt their company was ready to issue Forms1095-C to their employees by January 31, 2017, only 7-9% of respondents felt they were extremely prepared.

Court Blocks Start For New Overtime Rules

On November 22, 2016, a judge in a U.S. District Court temporarily blocked the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) overtime rules set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. In an article titled, “Court Blocks Dec. 1 Start For OT Rules”, Sushma Tripathi, ADP’s vice president for workforce planning and benefits consulting, advises companies to continue evaluating their employees’ status under the new rule despite the injunction. “The FSLA (Fair Labor Standards Act) is complex to begin with, so while the rule is delayed, employers should still continue to evaluate the status of their employees by reviewing their jobs’ duties and descriptions and making sure they have employees classified correctly,” said Tripathi.

FLSA Overtime Rules Temporarily Blocked

FLSA Changes No Longer Effective December 1, 2016 On November 22, 2016, a federal judge in Texas issued an injunction and temporarily blocked changes to the regulations governing the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. The court’s action stops the overtime rule changes from going into effect nationwide while the court decides the case. So what does this mean for you? Many employers have spent months preparing for the FLSA changes, identifying workers affected by the final regulations, determining whether to increase their salaries to comply or reclassify them as nonexempt employees, and communicating those changes to their employees.
