Holiday Pay and Year-End Bonuses: What’s Required, What’s Not?

Holiday Pay and Year-End Bonuses: What’s Required, What’s Not?

Are you required to pay employees for time off on a holiday? Are they entitled to premium pay if they work on a holiday? What happens if a payday falls on a holiday? And what are the overtime and tax implications of year-end bonuses? Below, we address these and other common questions about holiday pay and bonuses. Company-Observed Holidays: Unless obligated by contract or agreement, private employers are generally not required to provide paid holidays to non-exempt employees (those entitled to minimum wage and overtime). However, if your company closes on a holiday, exempt employees (those who meet specific salary and duties requirements) must generally still receive their full pay, as long as they work any part of the workweek. Holidays to Observe Many employers voluntarily offer various paid holidays to employees. Employers may generally choose which holidays to observe as paid holidays.

Why Businesspeople Should Learn a New Language

Why Businesspeople Should Learn a New Language

By Rosetta Stone Enterprise and Education – ADP Marketplace Partner Recently, the UK version of the Huffington Post blog published a list of eight reasons why you should learn a language. Although the list was directed at post-secondary students, some of its insights can be applied to the world of business. We’ll start with cognitive benefits. It seems as if the scientific community keeps building the case that bilinguals experience brain-strengthening benefits compared to monolingual cohorts. If you want to stay sharp throughout your career, including staving off the effects of dementia, learning a language is a great strategy. The list talks a lot about culture. The cultural competency gained through learning a language is just as valuable to a career as the language skills themselves. Understanding the people and places you are targeting is a great way to make a positive impression on clients, coworkers, and other colleagues. Then there are the practical benefits to a career. Bilingualism is one of the most sought-after skills in the marketplace....

Recruiting Trends: Passive vs. Active Jobseekers: Report Uncovers a Big Disconnect

Recruiting Trends highlighted findings from the ADP Research Institute’s® Evolution of Work study, which found that while only 24 percent of employees are actively seeking a new job, 42 percent said they’re not actively looking, yet are open to considering a new position. Ahu Yildirmaz, Co-Founder of the ADP Research Institute says “Employers are definitely overestimating the number of active jobseekers and underestimating the number of passive seekers.” Why are so many organizations underestimating the number of passive jobseekers within their ranks? Yildirmaz says it’s because they’re more focused on attracting new talent than on retaining and engaging the talent they already have. “If you think about the talent cycle, it’s not just about attracting new candidates, but keeping your existing employees, too,” she says.

Tackling ACA Compliance Allows Barton Malow to Focus on Strategic Growth Initiatives

The Challenge A Growing Company Deals with ACA Compliance Like many in her position, Sarah Bertolini, total compensation manager for Barton Malow Company, struggled with the new compliance demands brought about by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Dealing with the ACA’s complex reporting requirements and knowing what to do, and when to do it, to mitigate compliance risks and penalties could easily have been an overwhelming full-time job, requiring regulatory expertise and hours that Bertolini and other in-house resources simply didn’t have. Additionally, Barton Malow, a top-performing North American contractor that specializes in large-scale commercial construction, such as higher education, automotive and health care, had almost doubled its employee base in three years, making ACA compliance even more complicated. Bertolini needed a proactive solution and expertise to help her manage ACA compliance, including determining offer of coverage eligibility and monitoring important regulatory changes that might affect her company, so she could focus on her everyday tasks and job responsibilities. “ACA was just so overwhelming and constantly changing, as it...
