For Employers in Puerto Rico Impacted by Last Year’s Catastrophic Hurricanes: You May Now Be Eligible to Claim a Special Tax Credit

For Employers in Puerto Rico Impacted by Last Year’s Catastrophic Hurricanes: You May Now Be Eligible to Claim a Special Tax Credit

Almost a year after Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States, the island continues to face significant recovery challenges. However, as the government works to fully restore the electric grid, roads, and other infrastructure, more help is on the way for employers in Puerto Rico starting in early June – in the form of an Employee Retention Credit (ERC) that will be paid out as a direct-cash grant. Unfortunately, receiving the Puerto Rico ERC isn’t automatic. To claim the ERC, employers must meet certain requirements, provide a substantial amount of complex documentation, accurately calculate the amount for which you are eligible, and correctly apply for the ERC online. Navigating this process takes time and expertise that many employers may not have – but how many businesses can afford to leave money on the table? First, Some Background After successive hurricanes hit Texas, Florida, Georgia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the U.S. Congress acted quickly to provide tax relief for impacted...

Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass – Volume 2

Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass – Volume 2

By Jordan Birnbaum, ADP Chief Behavioral Economist, Talent Activation Volume 2 in a series of new insights from Compass Welcome back to the second installment of Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass, in which we examine the behaviors that are measured and coached by the product. But before we begin, let’s consider an open secret about assessments and surveys of all types. When we hear about a survey, most of us think about the information that is being collected. This makes it easy to overlook something else that is happening – that very important information is also being communicated. When we measure whether an employee feels sufficiently recognized at our organization, we are also communicating that sufficient recognition matters in this organization. The act of measuring a thing also validates the importance of that thing. So, when running Compass, an organization is not only supporting the exchange of valuable feedback between people. It is also setting a shared understanding of that which matters most for leadership and collaboration within...

Celebrate Pride Month with Better Tools to Drive Diversity and Inclusion

By Linda Mougalian, Division Vice President, Product Marketing and Strategy Amid the tightening labor market, having a diverse and inclusive workplace isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s a business imperative. To attract and retain talent, companies need to provide comfortable, supportive, and inspiring environments where people of different ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations can thrive. Employee engagement happens when workers can be their authentic selves, build upon their strengths, and know that their employers and coworkers are invested in their career development. This is particularly relevant during Pride Month which celebrates the social and political progress made by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) community. Still, the unfortunate reality is that many LGBTQ associates still don’t feel comfortable in the workplace. According to the 2017 Workplace Equality Fact Sheet by Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, one in four LGBT employees reported experiencing workplace discrimination in the previous five years. The unemployment rate of transgender Americans is three times higher than the national average, and more...
